Faroe Islands Electricity Stats

Definitions

  • Consumption: Total electricity consumed annually plus imports and minus exports, expressed in kilowatt-hours. The discrepancy between the amount of electricity generated and/or imported and the amount consumed and/or exported is accounted for as loss in transmission and distribution.
  • Consumption > Per capita: Total electricity consumed annually plus imports and minus exports, expressed in kilowatt-hours. The discrepancy between the amount of electricity generated and/or imported and the amount consumed and/or exported is accounted for as loss in transmission and distribution. Per capita figures expressed per 1 population.
  • Consumption by households > Per capita: Per capita figures expressed per 1 population.
  • Consumption by households and other consumers > Per capita: Per capita figures expressed per 1 population.
  • Conversion > Transport and distribution losses > Per capita: Per capita figures expressed per 1 population.
  • Energy balance requirement > Per capita: Per capita figures expressed per 1 population.
  • Exports > Per capita: Per capita figures expressed per 1 population.
  • From fossil fuels: This entry measures the capacity of plants that generate electricity by burning fossil fuels (such as coal, petroleum products, and natural gas), expressed as a share of the country's total generating capacity.
  • From nuclear fuels: This entry measures the capacity of plants that generate electricity through radioactive decay of nuclear fuel, expressed as a share of the country's total generating capacity.
  • From other renewable sources: This entry measures the capacity of plants that generate electricity by using renewable energy sources other than hydroelectric (including, for example, wind, waves, solar, and geothermal), expressed as a share of the country's total generating capacity.
  • Gross > Production > Public and self-producer > Per capita: Per capita figures expressed per 1 population.
  • Gross inland availability > Per capita: Per capita figures expressed per 1 population.
  • Hydro > Production > Per capita: Per capita figures expressed per 1 population.
  • Imports > Per capita: Per capita figures expressed per 1,000 population.
  • Installed generating capacity: This entry is the total capacity of currently installed generators, expressed in kilowatts (kW), to produce electricity. A 10-kilowatt (kW) generator will produce 10 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity, if it runs continuously for one hour.
  • Installed generating capacity per thousand people: This entry is the total capacity of currently installed generators, expressed in kilowatts (kW), to produce electricity. A 10-kilowatt (kW) generator will produce 10 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity, if it runs continuously for one hour. Figures expressed per thousand people for the same year.
  • Net > Production > Per capita: Per capita figures expressed per 1 population.
  • Net inland availability > Per capita: Per capita figures expressed per 1 population.
  • Production: The annual electricity generated expressed in kilowatt-hours. The discrepancy between the amount of electricity generated and/or imported and the amount consumed and/or exported is accounted for as loss in transmission and distribution.
  • Production > Per capita: The annual electricity generated expressed in kilowatt-hours. The discrepancy between the amount of electricity generated and/or imported and the amount consumed and/or exported is accounted for as loss in transmission and distribution. Per capita figures expressed per 1 population.
  • Production by source > Fossil fuel: The percentage share of electricity generated from each energy source. These are fossil fuel, hydro, nuclear, and other (solar, geothermal, and wind).
  • Production by source > Hydro: The percentage share of electricity generated from each energy source. These are fossil fuel, hydro, nuclear, and other (solar, geothermal, and wind).
  • Production by source > Nuclear: The percentage share of electricity generated from each energy source. These are fossil fuel, hydro, nuclear, and other (solar, geothermal, and wind).
  • Thermal > Production > Per capita: Per capita figures expressed per 1 population
  • Total > Production > Public > Per capita: Per capita figures expressed per 1 population
