Profiles of energy systems using data from the International Energy Agency (IEA) and BP
- The Introduction explains energy systems.
- The Climate & Energy posts explain energy emissions, climate impacts and the change needed to make our climate safe.
August 2019 – Updated World Energy Consumption chart 1 to show the quantity of electricity produced in 2016 would have a larger share within a 100% electrified wind/water/solar energy system, thereby demonstrating the remaining change needed for full electrification.
Rewriting the profile for Australia’s energy system using new charts showing electricity trade, losses, industry-own-use, and removing non-energy use of fuel sources (minor effect). Including BP data. Writing draft of UK’s energy profile.
July 2019 – Rewrote the profile for China’s energy system using new charts showing electricity trade, losses, industry-own-use, and removed non-energy use of fuel sources (minor effect). BP data added.
July 2019 – New charts for World Energy Consumption incorporating electricity losses and industry-own-use. Minor changes to shares of consumption after removal of non-energy use of fuel sources (mainly oil). Commentary reduced. Added BP data for electricity.
July 2019 – New charts, tables and BP data for World Energy Supply. No values changed. Commentary reduced. New chart formats copied from slide 30 at Robbie Andrew’s repository page for figures from the Global Carbon Budget.
Rewriting of Sweden’s energy profile. Completion of UK’s energy profile, followed by Germany, US and Japan.
