The ENTSO-E Yearly Statistics & Adequacy Retrospect (YS&AR) is a statistical report presenting the key features of Europe’s electricity market with graphics and charts. It provides a wide range of definitive data and figures on ENTSO-E member transmission system operators’ power systems – including production, consumption, cross-border exchanges and network components.
The YS&AR is issued once the data is definitive and complements two other ENTSO-E statistical publications,
Electricity in Europe and the
Statistical Factsheet, which are based on provisional data.
The YS&AR is published together with all the background data used in separate spreadsheets making it a very useful tool for stakeholders. It comes in addition to ENTSO-E’s data portal which makes already a lot of information available for the public and interested parties.
The first edition of the YS&AR was published in 2013 covering the year 2012. It combined and replaced two former ENTSO-E reports, the Statistical Yearbook and the System Adequacy Retrospect.
The fourth edition was released on 29 May 2017.

Yearly Statistics & Adequacy Retrospect 2013
The data presented in this edition covers 2013 and indicates that on ENTSO-E’s power system:
- Electricity consumption decreased by -1.3% (-1.0% when taking into account the fact that year 2012 was a leap year - one day more);
- Net Generating Capacity (NGC) increased again, but the increase from 2012 to 2013 (14 GW) was not as large as from 2011 to 2012 (43 GW);
- Unavailable Capacity increase was of the same order of magnitude as the NGC increased
(13.6 GW on average): this is because more and more power comes from Renewable Energy Sources (RES), large percentages of which are often unavailable.
