* Availability factor (time availability factor) kt = tN/tV: The time availability factor kt is the quotient

of available time of a plant (tV) and the reference period (tN). The time availability factor is a degree

for the deployability of a power plant.

** Energy availability factor kW = WV/WN: The energy availability factor kW is the quotient of available

energy of a plant (WV ) and the nominal energy (WN). The nominal energy WN is the product of nominal

capacity and reference period. This variable is used as a reference variable (100 % value) for availability

considerations. The available energy WV is the energy which can be generated in the reference period

due to the technical and operational condition of the plant. Energy availability factors in excess of 100 %

are thus impossible, as opposed to energy utilisation.

*** Inclusive of round up/down, rated power in 2017.

**** The Gundremmingen nuclear power plant (KRB B) was permanently shutdown on 31 December 2017

due to the revision of the German Atomic Energy Act in 2011.

All data in this report as of 31 March 2018.
