Daviz Visualization Efficiency of autoproducers conventional thermal power production
Located in Data and maps Data visualisations
Figure Efficiency (electricity and heat) from public conventional thermal plants, 1990, 2009
The EEA efficiencies exclude Iceland (and Croatia) (for conventional) and Iceland and Norway (and Croatia) (for public conventional). Iceland is missing because there is no data in Eurostat this year. Croatia was included last year but has been excluded because it is not part of EEA32. For Norway its efficiency is above 100% in 1990 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 2009, so Sweden is included in the charts.

Figure Final electricity consumption by sector, EU-27
Final electricity consumption is the electricity consumption of the final energy demand sectors, it does not include own use by electricity producers or transformation, transmission and distribution losses.

Figure Share of renewable electricity in gross electricity consumption (%) 1990-2009 and 2010 indicative targets
The renewable electricity share in Norway is above 100% in some years because a part of the (renewable) electricity generated domestically is exported to other countries. No data is available for Iceland or Liechtenstein.

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 the gross electricity production in 2005
The share is defined as the proportion of CHP electricity production (from both auto-producers and public utilities) in the total electricity production

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
