The Electricity Information 2020 data service contains time series of electricity and heat data for 36 OECD countries, from 1960 to 2018, and provisional supply data for 2019, unless otherwise specified. Country aggregates for OECD Total, OECD Americas, OECD Asia Oceania, OECD Europe and IEA 30 are also included.
Annual statistics are available for detailed supply/demand balances, end-use consumption, electricity trade by partner country, specific autoproducer electricity and heat consumption data, as well as electricity generation capacity and capacity factors by generation type. Monthly electricity generation data by broad category are also presented for OECD countries excluding Israel.
