The charts below show the amount of energy lost from generation of electricity to the time it reaches the consumer from brown and black coal. Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main points and make comparisons where relevant.
Write at least 150 words.
An account of the share of energy lost from black and brown coal from their generation to its supply to the end consumer is depicted in the given charts.
It is clear that the overall proportion of lost energy at various stages is almost similar in both cases, despite minor variations.
As per the charts, it is clear that most energy loss occurs at the power station when the power generation occurs. When 73% of the total loss occurs in case of black coal at this stage, in case of brown coal, it is 10% less.
The proportional difference of energy loss from the transmission and distribution of energy from both the sources is zero. In both cases, the share of energy lost is just 3%.
However, a greater proportion of energy loss occurs with the supply of energy to the final consumer in case of brown coal. This is 34% of the total, which is 10% more than from the supply of energy from black coal.
