Additional information

The electricity directive (2001/77/EC) defines renewable electricity as the share of electricity produced from renewable energy sources in gross electricity consumption. The latter includes imports and exports of electricity. The electricity generated from pumping in hydropower plants is included in gross electricity consumption but it is not included as a renewable source of energy. Large hydropower plants have a declared net capacity of more than 10 MW. No data is available for Liechtenstein or Switzerland from Eurostat.
