Luxembourg imports virtually all its energy consumed since imports was higher than primary energy use in 2004-2009. In 2009 compared to 2004 population growth was 11% but CO2 emissions were 11% lower. In 2008, primary energy use per person in Luxembourg was 2.5 times higher than in the United Kingdom.
In 2008, electricity use per person in Luxembourg was 2.6 times greater than in the United Kingdom.
At the end of 2010 the installed capacity of wind power covered on average 1.1% of electricity use. Which is among the lowest in Europe, only Latvia, Czech Republic, Finland, Slovakia, Slovenia and Malta generate a smaller share of their electricity from wind power. In comparison Ireland can generate over half of its electricity from wind power under optimal wind conditions in 2010.
