Electricity Generation

Ask a Question

  • This interactive map and table shows the quantity of electricity generated by each country starting from 1985.
  • It provides a graphical representation of how much each country has generated over the years and can be useful for providing a projection towards the future.
Teaching Tips


  • This is a great interactive tool that students can use for research. 

Additional Prerequisites

  • Educators will need time to get familiar with the interactive media and decide on how to implement it with learners.
  • Prior knowledge of how electricity is generated will be helpful.


  • There are other related interactive media for measuring similar realities.
  • This can be used to create awareness about one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
