Efficiency (electricity and heat) production from conventional thermal plants, 1990, 2009
The EEA efficiencies exclude Norway (for conventional), and Norway and Switzerland (for public conventional) - their efficiencies are above 100% in either 1990 or 2008 because the electricity consumed for heating is not considered as an input although the heating from electric boilers is considered in total output. Swedish conventional and public conventional efficiencies are above 100% in some years (when including district heating), but not in 1990 or in 2008, so Sweden is included in the charts.
