The data presented in this dataset is extracted from Iran's energy balance sheet, published annually by the Ministry of Energy in Persian. This dataset includes electricity generation (gross electric output (GWh).xlsx), fuel consumption (energy consumption (teracal).xlsx), and carbon dioxide emissions (carbon emissions (ton).xlsx) in power plants belonging to the Ministry of Energy, the private sector, and large industries (1990-2017) (1369-1396 Solar Hijri calendar). The balance sheet's data structure has changed over the past three decades, leading to a lack of proper data publication in some years. For example, from 1990 to 1992, the special production data of large industries' power plants were not separated from the medium and small industries. Therefore, due to the availability of installed capacity in these industries, the author calculated electricity generation in large industries' power plants. Besides, comparing data with Iran's Central Bank statistics has made the dataset more accurate than balance sheets.
