Notes on a New Kind of IES Table
The tables for Electricity Generation, All Products - Single Year and for Renewables, Electricity Generation, All Products - Single Year are in a new format, slightly different from the other IES tables. This is related to new user options for requesting data. Other tables based on these new user options will be introduced into IES in the coming months.
One difference for these 2 tables is that Solar is now separated from Tide & Wave. Another difference is that the header for these tables now includes a line showing the sequence of user choices leading to the table. For example, the table for Renewables, Electricity Generation, All Product - Single Year, 2011 now includes the following header line:
Renewables > Generation > Year: 2011 > Selected Products (Billion Kilowatthours)
Other differences are in files downloaded to Excel. Normal Excel downloads from IES begin with 3 header rows, then a blank row, then data. Excel files downloaded from tables in the new format will have several more header rows, giving a better description of the data columns. The new Excel header rows will have information similar to what you see when you generate the table in the IES interactive system.
