Electricity statistics update 2014
The Icelandic National Energy Authority (NEA) has published statistics regarding the electricity industry in 2014. You can access the publication in Icelandic and English on NEA’s website (link to the pdf-file in English). Here are some of the key numbers:
TOTAL ELECTRICITY GENERATION: 18,122 GWh (2014)
ELECTRICITY GENERATION SHARE BY SOURCE:
|Hydro Power||12,873 GWh 71%|
|Geothermal Power||5,239 GWh 29%|
|Other||10 GWh 0%|
|Total||18,122 GWh 100%|
NB: Electricity generated by wind power and fossil fuels was to small amount to be measured as a percentage on the scale of this table. This is the second year the NEA publishes data for generated wind power in Iceland. It was 8 GWh, which was less than 0.001% of all electricity generated in Iceland in 2014.
ELECTRICITY POWER CAPACITY:
|Hydro Power||1,986 MW|
|Geothermal Power||665 MW|
|Wind Power||3 MW|
|Fossil Fuels||106 MW|
|Total Power Capacity||2,760 MW|
ELECTRICITY CONSUMPTION SHARE:
|Energy Intensive Industries||77%|
NB: In its report for 2014, NEA does not explain what happened to 1% of the electricity.
