Spanish term or phrase: capacidad instalada (de industrias en general)
La producción industrial creció xxx. En tanto, el uso de la capacidad instalada descendió al xxx por ciento.

No se refiere a una industria en particular.
Lo que necesito saber es si "installed capacity" es la traducción de este término.
Como definición de "installed capacity" encontré:
* The total of the capacities shown on the nameplates of the generating units in a powerplant.
* The measure of a power station’s electric generating capacity at full production, usually measured in megawatts (MW).

Siempre se refiere a power stations.

Capacidad instalada e "installed capacity" es lo mismo?
