Energy Balances and Electricity Profiles 2010

image of Energy Balances and Electricity Profiles 2010
The 2010 Energy Balances and Electricity Profiles contains energy balances for about 115 developing countries, showing production, trade, conversion and consumption in energy units for all energy products; and electricity profiles for about 190 countries, providing detailed information on production, trade and consumption of electricity, net installed capacity and thermal power plant input for selected developing and developed countries.

Concepts and definitions

Production of primary energy (row 1): Primary energy refers to energy sources as found in their natural state (as opposed to derived or secondary energy, which is the result of the transformation of primary sources). Production of primary energy refers to the quantity of fuels which are extracted or produced, calculated after any operation for removal of inert matter. In general, production includes the quantities consumed by the producer in the production process (e.g. for heating or operation of equipment or auxiliaries) as well as supplies to other producers of energy for transformation or other uses. Data on the production of hard coal and lignite refer to coal after washing and screening for the removal of inorganic matter. Production of natural gas liquids is shown together with the production of crude petroleum. Data for natural gas refer to dry marketable production measured after purification and extraction of natural gas liquids and sulphur. Extraction losses and the amounts that have been reinjected, flared, and vented are excluded. Production includes quantities used within the natural gas industry, in gas extraction, pipeline systems and processing plants. Production of primary electricity refers to gross production of electrical energy of nuclear, hydro, geothermal, wind, tide, wave and solar origin. Biomass production includes only that portion used for fuel purposes.
