Electricity statistics

The Austrian electricity statistics primarily contain market information. They also cover the energy balance. The full range of electricity statistics of E-Control is available from our German pages; only key information in English is posted here.


Electricity balance

The monthly electricity balance relies on the first and second clearing for demand and supply, i.e. data which are collected on a quarter-hourly basis. The physical imports and exports, including all transits, are added at the same time resolution as are metered data on the injection into the public grid and the consumption for pumped storage of big power plants (i.e. exceeding an installed capacity of 25 MW). To these data, the monthly gross production of relevant plants with a capacity of at least 10 MW is added, allowing for a more detailed seasonal break-down of the production. On the consumption side the inclusion of own-use for production and pumping serves the same purpose.

The electricity statistics are therefore commodity balances based on the physical flows and cover Austrian territory.

Year 2018 (preliminary data)

Data may be subject to changes due to data revisions.

 

Public grid

The monthly balance for the public grid breaks the consumption down to final consumption. This corresponds to the final energy consumption according to the energy balance but in addition includes the electricity consumption of the energy sector(s). The production side is subdivided by type of power plant.

Total electricity supply

In addition to data for the public grid, auto-producers, depending on their size, have to report monthly or annually the production, consumption and the exchange with the public grid. The grouping of both the consumption and the production sides is the same as for the public grid.

Indicators for hydro and thermal generation

The energy capability factor for run-of-river plants as well as the energy content of big reservoirs and fuel stocks for thermal power plants are important indicators for general conditions in the market.


Year 2017 (preliminary data)

Market statistics

Information on the structure of the electricity market is published quarterly or annually.

On an annual basis the final consumption in the public grid is further broken down into the consumer categories households, small commercial and other small consumers, agriculture and industry.
