Electricity and Oil Consumption

By: Jeff Clark    Date: Tue, 30 Oct 2007

Here are a couple of simple bar charts showing which countries consume the most electricity and oil per person. I only included countries with more than 1 million people in the analysis. The data comes from the CIA World Factbook.

This first one shows the top countries for electricity consumption per capita. The top countries are mostly rich and cold with the exception of some oil-rich nations.

This second graph shows the countries having the highest per capita consumption of oil. Some heavy oil producers show up (Kuwait, UAE, US, Canada ) as well as some smaller highly developed countries (Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan).
