The development of electricity consumption

June 2017

Stuart Morrison recently assisted Adrian Kemp in preparing visuals for his talk at Power & Electricity World in Manila last month. Stuart created the chart below showing the relationship between electricity per capita, GDP per capita and total national emissions. The visualisation of this data reveals some interesting trends, including:

  • the momentous rise of electricity consumption per capita in China – especially over neighbouring Malaysia;
  • the decrease in Greece’s GDP per capita from 2009; and
  • the decrease in electricity consumption per capita in Australia – driven by take-up of rooftop solar-PV and more efficient appliances.
