The Energy Trends report for 2018 has been published today by Statistics Jersey. The Energy Trends report looks at the supply and use of various fuels such as electricity, gas and petroleum products. It also focuses on changes over time.
The 2018 report shows:
- almost all of Jersey’s energy supply was imported; about 2% was produced on-Island as electricity generated by the Energy from Waste Facility
- petroleum products accounted for almost two-thirds (63%) of Jersey’s energy supply; electricity (imported and on-Island generated) accounted for the remainder (37%)
- Jersey’s total primary energy supply (TPES) was 2% higher than in 2017
- total final energy consumption (FEC) was 2% higher than in 2017
- energy consumption per head of resident population was 1.4 toe and was below that of the UK (2.1 toe)
- of total energy used, more than a third (38%) was by households, a similar proportion (34%) was used for transportation (predominantly road) and over a quarter (28%) was used by industry and government
