Detailed structure and explanatory notes

ISIC Rev.4 code D


  • Section: D - Electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply


This Section is divided into the following Divisions:

  • 35 - Electricity, gas, steam and air conditioning supply

Explanatory note

This section includes the activity of providing electric power, natural gas, steam, hot water and the like through a permanent infrastructure (network) of lines, mains and pipes. The dimension of the network is not decisive; also included are the distribution of electricity, gas, steam, hot water and the like in industrial parks or residential buildings.
This section therefore includes the operation of electric and gas utilities, which generate, control and distribute electric power or gas. Also included is the provision of steam and air-conditioning supply.

This section excludes the operation of water and sewerage utilities, see 36, 37. This section also excludes the (typically long-distance) transport of gas through pipelines.
