The power generation industry is a sub-segment of electric utilities industry which involves production of electricity in power plants or farms using a set of primary sources of energy or fuel. Below is current consensus forecast data on revenue drivers, such as renewable generation capacity, non-renewable generation capacity, renewable electricity production, non-renewable electricity production, renewable electricity generation revenue, and non-renewable electricity generation revenue; and financial metrics, such as total revenue and free cash flow. These key power generation metrics aid market participants in identifying power generating trends and future performance of companies, including EDP Renovaveis, Emel Americas SA, Korea Electric Power Coproration, Electricite de France and more.
What are the most important power generation KPIs?
Key performance indicators (KPIs) are the most important business metrics for a particular industry and are where investors should look to find an investment edge. When understanding market expectations for power generation , whether at a company or industry level, here are some of the power generating KPIs to consider:
- Renewable generation capacity
- Non-renewable generation capacity
- Renewable electricity production
- Non-renewable electricity production
- Renewable electricity generation revenue
- Non-renewable electricity generation revenue
- Total revenue
- Operating income/loss
- Net income/loss
- Free cash flow
What questions do these key power generation metrics answer?

Capacity is the maximum output an electricity power plant can produce when it’s running in full blast. This maximum amount of power is typically measured in megawatts (MW) or kilowatts (KW).
Capacity factor (in %) tells about how efficiently a power plant is generating electricity. A power plant’s capacity factor is the ratio of actual output to the maximum possible output during the time period.
Total volume sold (in MWh or GWh) by a company is the product of total capacity (MW or KW) and the capacity factor (%) of power plants owned or operated by the company. Formula for Volume sold (GWh) = ((Capacity(MW)*365*24) * Capacity factor(%))/1000
Average Selling Price
ASP is the weighted average price for volume sold by the company. Here the price is the weighted average price that includes electricity being generated by all sources of energy or fuel. This price is usually measured in MWh or KWh.
