Power Lost: Sizing Electricity Losses in Transmission and Distribution Systems in Latin America and the Caribbean

Nov 2014
Electricity loss is a key component in measuring the efficiency and financial sustainability of the power sector. It represents the difference between the amount of electricity that enters the network and the amount that is delivered to end-users, reflecting the degree of productivity of transmission and distribution systems. The objective of this Brief on electricity losses in transmission and distribution systems is to map the severity of the problem across LAC countries.
