The Interactive UK Energy Consumption Guide

In 2010, total UK overall primary energy consumption in primary energy terms (i.e. fuels obtained directly from natural sources) was 218.5 million tonnes of oil equivalent, 3 per cent higher than in 2009. However, it should be noted that in 2009 UK primary energy consumption was at its lowest level in the last 20 years as a result of the downturn in the economy.
