    It should be noted that AGEB often makes some corrections on last year data and sometimes also on previous data.
  • Gross Domestic Consumption is the sum of the various inland gross generations (electric energy coming out from generators without deducting ancillary services consumptions) and net imports with foreign regions (+imports, -exports).
  • Hydro (natural) is the generation minus energy originating from pumped water.
  • Light green dotted line represents the 2020 renewable production target (38,6% of GDC) as stated in National Renewable Energy Action Plans (NREAP) set by European Directive 2009/28/EC.
    Green dotted line represents the 2020 renewable production target (35% of GDC) as declared in  "Energiewende" (Energetic change), an energy planning document.
