On July 27, 2016, the Agency for Natural Resources and Energy (ANRE) hereby announces that the compiled results of the Surveys and Statistics of Electricity in April 2016 have been publicized.

The Surveys and Statistics of Electricity are a compilation of monthly reports on the amount of generated and received electricity involving electricity utilities under Article 2 (1) (xvii) of the Electricity Business Act, namely, electricity retail businesses, general electricity transmission/distribution businesses, electricity transmission businesses, specified electricity transmission/distribution businesses and electricity producers, which are submitted by the utilities under Article 2 of the Ordinance for the Submission of Reports on Electricity Business.

In line with the enforcement of the Act for Partial Revision of the Electricity Business Act (second stage), the categories of service involving electricity utilities have been dramatically revised, and also the concepts of service areas involving the former general electricity utilities have been deleted. In accordance with this revision, the Surveys and Statistics of Electricity have also been dramatically changed, including the revision of the definition of target businesses that are required to submit reports on the results of business from April 2016 and the prefecture-based compilation of the results of electricity generation or demand.
