In excess means something that is greater or more than the amount specified. For example, "the album sold in excess of 2 million copies".

It is the condition of exceeding or going above the limit of what is normal or required. It is the state of going over and above the required limit for something. For example, "the dams were filled in excess due to constant rain". It basically refers to a surplus of a quantity. It refers to an overabundance of a substance.

In terms of consumption, it refers to overindulging in something. For example, "he drank in excess that night". It may also refer to superfluousness and extravagance in doing something.
