Tunisia - Electricity production

Electricity production from oil, gas and coal sources (% of total)

Electricity production from oil, gas and coal sources (% of total) in Tunisia was 98.83 as of 2010. Its highest value over the past 39 years was 99.52 in 2008, while its lowest value was 93.81 in 1973.

Definition: Sources of electricity refer to the inputs used to generate electricity. Oil refers to crude oil and petroleum products. Gas refers to natural gas but excludes natural gas liquids. 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.

Electricity production (kWh)

The value for Electricity production (kWh) in Tunisia was 16,096,000,000 as of 2010. As the graph below shows, over the past 39 years this indicator reached a maximum value of 16,096,000,000 in 2010 and a minimum value of 926,000,000 in 1971.

Definition: Electricity production is measured at the terminals of all alternator sets in a station. In addition to hydropower, coal, oil, gas, and nuclear power generation, it covers generation by geothermal, solar, wind, and tide and wave energy, as well as that from combustible renewables and waste. Production includes the output of electricity plants that are designed to produce electricity only as well as that of combined heat and power plants.
