Electricity Interpret

We publish a lot of energy data regularly. These data include six areas, economic, energy, electricity, oil, natural gas, renewable energy. To better help users understand the energy data, here we put some data interpret. Please contact us if you still have any questions about the data.


Electricity generation is defined as electricity generated from fossil fuels, nuclear power plants, hydro power plants (excluding pumped storage), geothermal systems, solar panels, biofuels, wind, etc. It includes electricity produced in electricity-only plants and in combined heat and power plants. Both main activity producer and autoproducer plants are included, where data are available. Main activity producers generate electricity for sale to third parties as their primary activity. Autoproducers generate electricity wholly or partly for their own use as an activity supporting their primary activity. Both types of plants may be privately or publicly owned.

Electricity generation, Electricity

A station that consists of electric generators and auxiliary equipment for converting mechanical, chemical, or nuclear energy into electric energy.

Generating station, Electricity

Any combination of physically connected generators, reactors, boilers, combustion turbines, and other prime movers operated together to produce electric power.

Generating unit, Electricity

Installed capacity also known as nameplate capacity.The maximum rated output of a generator, prime mover, or other electric power production equipment under specific conditions designated by the manufacturer. Installed generator nameplate capacity is commonly expressed in megawatts (MW) and is usually indicated on a nameplate physically attached to the generator.

Installed capacity, Electricity

Electricity consumption is the form of energy consumption that uses electric energy.This entry consists of total electricity generated annually plus imports and minus exports. The discrepancy between the amount of electricity generated and/or imported and the amount consumed and/or exported is accounted for as loss in transmission and distribution.

Electricity consumption, Electricity

Electricity tariff (electricity price) generally reflect the costs to build, finance, maintain, and operate power plants and the electricity grid (the complex system of power transmission and distribution lines). Some for-profit utilities also include a return for owners and shareholders in their prices. There are several key factors that influence the price of electricity: fuel type and market price, power plant costs, transmission system cost, government subsidies, regulations, and weather conditions.

Electricity transmission is the bulk transfer of electrical energy, from generating power plants to electrical substations located near demand centers. This is distinct from the local wiring between high-voltage substations and customers, which is typically referred to as electric power distribution. Transmission lines, when interconnected with each other, become transmission networks. The combined transmission and distribution network is known as the "power grid".

Electricity transmission, Electricity

An electric power distribution system is the final stage in the delivery of electric power; it carries electricity from the transmission system to individual consumers. Distribution substations connect to the transmission system and lower the transmission voltage to medium voltage with the use of transformers. Primary distribution lines carry this medium voltage power to distribution transformers located near the customer's premises. Distribution transformers again lower the voltage to the utilization voltage of household appliances and typically feed several customers through secondary distribution lines at this voltage. Commercial and residential customers are connected to the secondary distribution lines through service drops. Customers demanding a much larger amount of power may be connected directly to the primary distribution level or the subtransmission.

Electricity distribution, Electricity

A substation is a part of an electrical generation, transmission, and distribution system. Substations transform voltage from high to low, or the reverse, or perform any of several other important functions. Between the generating station and consumer, electric power may flow through several substations at different voltage levels.

Electricity substation, Electricity

Electric energy lost due to the transmission of electricity.

Transmission loss, Electricity

Electric energy lost due to the distribution of electricity.

Distribution loss, Electricity

The maximum load during a specified period of time.

Peak Load, Electricity

The ratio of the average load to peak load during a specified time interval.

Load Factor, Electricity
