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 2017 (provisional data):
  • 1 112 PJ (26.6 Mtoe)
  • 202 GJ / capita (4.82 toe/capita)

Final consumption of energy in 2016:
  • 1 101 PJ (26.3 Mtoe)
  • 200 GJ / capita (4.78 toe/capita)

Final consumption of energy went up by one per cent. Of final consumption sectors, the change in manufacturing was biggest with a growth of two per cent and its share of total final consumption was 46 per cent. Nearly the same amount of energy for space heating was consumed as in the previous year, which corresponded to a share of 26 per cent in final energy consumption. Energy use of transport remained nearly unchanged with a share of 17 per cent.
