Final Consumption of Energy

Final consumption of energy measures the consumption of final energy products, i.e. fuels used for electricity, district heating and space heating, and transportation fuels and industrial processing fuels. The difference between total and final consumption is lost through transformation and transmission losses of energy.

Final consumption of energy in 2016 (provisional data):
  • 1 081 PJ (25.8 Mtoe)
  • 196 GJ / capita (4.69 toe/capita)

Final consumption of energy in 2015:
  • 1 055 PJ (25.2 Mtoe)
  • 192 GJ / capita (4.69 toe/capita)

Final consumption of energy went up by 2.5 per cent. Final consumption of energy in manufacturing remained unchanged from the previous year, being 45 per cent of total consumption according to preliminary data. The use of heating energy of buildings was eight per cent higher and its share was 26 per cent. The use of energy in transport rose by one per cent and was 17 per cent of final energy consumption.
