Supplementary notes

Plant Load Factor (PLF) is the ratio between the actual energy generated by the plant to the maximum possible energy that can be generated with the plant working at its rated power and for a duration of an entire year. This includes combined cycle gas turbine stations, nuclear stations, pumped storage hydroelectricity stations as well as conventional thermal power stations such as coal-fired stations, steam plants, gas turbines and oil engines, and plants producing electricity from thermal renewable sources.

According to the source, the data cover the 12 months ending March of the following year, e.g. 2014 data are for the year ending March 2015.
