List of countries by electricity consumption

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This list of countries by [electric energy consumption] is mostly based on The World Factbook.[1] For informational purposes several non-sovereign entities are also included in this list with their parent state noted. In addition, 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 2005, except for years other than 2005, 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]

Electric power per capita [ in watt-hour ] = Total population electricity consumption [ in MW·h/yr ] * 1,000,000/(365.25 x 24)/population.
Electric power per capita [ in watt-hour ] = Total population electricity consumption [ in MW·h/yr ] * 114.077116 /population.
1 MW·h/yr = 1,000,000 Wh/(365.25 x 24)h = 114.077116 Watt
Rank Country Electricity consumption (MW·h/yr) Year of Data Source Population As of Average power per capita (watts per person)
