China is being the top country by electricity net generation in the world. As of 2014, electricity net generation in China was 5,388.17 billion kilowatthours that accounts for 23.83 % of the world's electricity net generation. The top 5 countries (others are the United States of America, India, Russian Federation, and Japan) account for 56.13 % of it. The world's total electricity net generation was estimated at 22,615.52 billion kilowatthours in 2014.
The amount of gross generation less the electrical energy consumed at the generating station(s) for station service or auxiliaries. Electricity required for pumping at pumped-storage plants is regarded as electricity for station service and is deducted from gross generation.
