Electricity statistics update 2013

The Icelandic National Energy Authority (NEA) has published statistics regarding the electricity industry in 2013. The publication is in Icelandic only (link to the pdf-file). Here are some of the key numbers:

————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

TOTAL ELECTRICITY GENERATION:          18,116 GWh (2013)

————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

ELECTRICITY GENERATION SHARE BY SOURCE:

Hydro Power 71%
Geothermal Power     29%
Other     0%
Total 100%

NB: Electricity generated by wind power and fossil fuels was to small amount to be measured on the scale of this table. This is the first year the NEA publishes data for generated wind power in Iceland (it was 5 GWh which is less than 0.001% of all electricity in Iceland in 2013).

ELECTRICITY POWER CAPACITY:

 

Hydro Power  1,986 MW
Geothermal Power     665 MW
Wind Power         2 MW
Fossil Fuels     114 MW
Total Power Capacity 2,767 MW

ELECTRICITY CONSUMPTION SHARE:

Energy Intensive Industries 80%
General Consumption     18%
Other     2%
Total 100.00%
