List of countries by electricity consumption

Last updated

This list of countries by electric energy consumption is mostly based on The World Factbook. [1] Several non-sovereign entities are also included for informational purposes, with their parent state noted. The per capita data for many countries may be slightly inaccurate as population data may not be for the same year that the consumption data are. Population data were obtained from the List of countries by population in 2016, except for years other than 2016, in which case they were obtained from the Wikipedia pages for the corresponding countries/territories. Average power per capita was calculated according to the formula: [2]

<i>The World Factbook</i> reference resource

The World Factbook, also known as the CIA World Factbook, is a reference resource produced by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) with almanac-style information about the countries of the world. The official print version is available from the Government Printing Office. Other companies—such as Skyhorse Publishing—also print a paper edition. The Factbook is available in the form of a website that is partially updated every week. It is also available for download for use off-line. It provides a two- to three-page summary of the demographics, geography, communications, government, economy, and military of each of 267 international entities including U.S.-recognized countries, dependencies, and other areas in the world.


Electric energy per capita [ in watt-hour ] = Total population electricity consumption [ in kW·h/yr ] * 1,000 /population.
Electric power per capita [ in watt ] = Total population electricity consumption [ in kW·h/yr ] * 0.114077116 /population.
1 kW·h/yr = 1,000 Wh/(365.25 x 24)h = 0.11408 Watt
