Figure Efficiency of conventional electricity generation in 1990 and 2003
The efficiency is calculated as total electricity output from conventional thermal power plants divided by total fuel input

Indicator Assessment Efficiency of conventional thermal electricity generation (ENER 019) - Assessment published Apr 2012
The efficiency of electricity and heat production from conventional thermal power plants improved between 1990 and 2009 by 5.5 percentage points (from 45.4% in 1990 to 50.9% in 2009). Between 1990 and 2005, the improvement was even greater at 7.0 percentage points (from 45.4% in 1990 to 52.4% in 2005). 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. Between 2005 and 2009, there was a decline in efficiency of electricity and heat production from conventional thermal power plants of 1.5 percentage points (from 52.4% in 2005 to 50.9% in 2009) because of lower heat production.

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).

Indicator Assessment Efficiency of conventional thermal electricity generation (ENER 019) - Assessment published Sep 2010
The efficiency of electricity and heat production from conventional thermal power and district heating plants improved steadily from 43.5% in 1990 to 49.0% in 2006, but decreased to 48.3% in 2007 because of lower heat production. The improvement until 2006 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 (30.0% in the period 1990-2007).

Figure Efficiency of conventional thermal electricity and heat production
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. The figure on the left is including district heat and the figure on the right is excluding district heat. Left figure: Efficiency of conventional thermal electricity and heat production (including district heat). Right figure: Efficiency of conventional thermal electricity and heat production (excluding district heat)

Figure Efficiency of conventional thermal electricity and heat production
The average energy efficiency of conventional thermal electricity and heat production in the EU-27 improved over the period 1990-2008 by 6.3% to reach 49.8 %in 2008 (48.5 % excluding district heating). 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.

Figure Electricity consumption per capita (in kWh/cap) in 2008
The average electricity use per capita in the EU-27 is over 2.3 times the global average and 2.8 times that of China. Only Luxembourg, Sweden, Finland, Norway and Iceland are using more electricity per capita than in the United States. The rest of the EU-27 is well below the US
