Description topics

Electricity
Flow of electrons used to light lamps or to operate washing machines. Electrons are elementary particles in an atom with a negative charge that flow by a potential difference.
Production
The amount of electricity generated by energy companies. Local generation, for example by hospitals or hotels, is not included.
Total
Total production of electricity.
Fossil
Fossil production of electricity.
Electricity produced with diesel generators.
Renewable
Renewable production of electricity.
Electricity produced with wind turbines.
Mains water
Production
The volume of mains water produced by the water company. Local production, for example by hotels, is not included.
