Canada - Electricity production from coal sources

Electricity production from coal sources (kWh)

The value for Electricity production from coal sources (kWh) in Canada was 80,812,000,000 as of 2011. As the graph below shows, over the past 51 years this indicator reached a maximum value of 117,891,000,000 in 2001 and a minimum value of 3,917,000,000 in 1960.

Definition: Sources of electricity refer to the inputs used to generate electricity. Coal refers to all coal and brown coal, both primary (including hard coal and lignite-brown coal) and derived fuels (including patent fuel, coke oven coke, gas coke, coke oven gas, and blast furnace gas). Peat is also included in this category.
