Total Energy Consumption

Total energy consumption in 2016 (provisional data):
  • 1 350 PJ (31.9 Mtoe)
  • 243 GJ / capita (5.79 toe/capita)

Total energy consumption in 2015:
  • 1 305 PJ (31.2 Mtoe)
  • 238 GJ / capita (5.68 toe/capita)

According to Statistics Finland’s preliminary data, total energy consumption amounted to 1 350 PJ (petajoule), or 371 TWh in 2016, which was two per cent more than in 2016. Energy consumption rose on account of slightly colder weather last year compared with the record warm previous year. Despite a small rise, total consumption was the second lowest in the 2010s.
