060 - Thermal efficiency

The Australian Electricity Market Operator has a database called the National Transmission Network Development Plan (NTNDP) database - the NTNDP is basically a report that looks at what future grid wires might look  like. There are some detailed, fascinating data points underneath this report.

The chart below shows the thermal efficiency for new power stations in Australia - it's measured in HHV - "High heating value". This is, basically, how much you get out, relative to what you put in.
