Indicator Assessment Efficiency of conventional thermal electricity generation (ENER 019) - Assessment published Aug 2011
The efficiency of electricity and heat production from conventional thermal power plants improved steadily from 43.5% in 1990 to 50.1% in 2005, but decreased to 49.8% in 2008 because of lower heat production. The improvement until 2005 was due to the closure of old inefficient plants, improvements in existing technologies, often combined with a switch from coal power plants to more efficient combined cycle gas-turbines. The environmental benefits resulting from the increase in efficiency of the conventional thermal electricity and heat production (including biomass were offset by the rapid growth in fossil-fuel based (oil, gas, coal & lignite) electricity production (38 % in the period 1990-2008, see ENER009).

Figure Share of combined heat and power in gross electricity production in 2004
The most recent available data are for 2004.In Cyprus and Malta there was no CHP generation in 2004.The share is defined as the proportion of CHP electricity production (from both private and public utilities) in total gross electricity production, including generation in pumped storage power stations

Figure EU-15 C02 emissions from public electricity and heat production compared with electricity production in thermal power plants and final electricity consumption
Left: This graph shows past (1990-2004) carbon dioxide emissions due to public electricity and heat production, and compares them with past and projected electricity production in thermal power plants and final electricity consumption

Figure Efficiency (electricity and heat) from autoproducers conventional thermal plants, 1990, 2010
Output from conventional thermal power stations consists of gross electricity generation and also of any heat sold to third parties (combined heat and power plants) by conventional thermal public utility power stations as well as autoproducer thermal power stations. Due to inconsistencies in the Eurostat data set Bulgaria, Greece, Lithuania, Luxembourg and Norway are excluded for all years (efficiencies >100%). For Cyprus, Iceland and Malta data on autoproducers is not available, therefore they are also excluded for all years.
