Energy Consumption & Electricity Generation

Energy Consumption, also known as Final Energy, accounts for energy in the form that it’s consumed, accounting for electricity separately from forms of heat (e.g oil products consumed by transport, or coal consumed for steel manufacture). For further explanation see the introduction.

This site uses IEA data to display energy consumption, for which the most recent year at time of publishing (June 2024) is 2021. Data from The Energy Institute (EI), which is more recent and used for other charts here is unsuitable for this purpose (EI label Primary Energy as Energy Consumption).
