Electricity - installed generating capacity (kW)

See how world countries compare to each other in terms of Electricity - installed generating capacity. Follow the color coded map to visually see how Electricity - installed generating capacity is distributed between world countries. The darker the color, the higher the value. You can filter which regions to display in the table. When filters are used the two ranks are displayed: the one within the current filter set and the global rank.

This entry is the total capacity of currently installed generators, expressed in kilowatts (kW), to produce electricity. A 10-kilowatt (kW) generator will produce 10 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity, if it runs continuously for one hour.
