List of countries by electricity consumption

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

This list of countries by electric energy consumption is mostly based on the Energy Information Administration.[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 mainly from the World Bank [1] in 2019 with some exceptions, 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 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
