Reduced energy use

The use of energy in Norwegian municipalities declined by 3 per cent in 2009. The use of energy declined in 239 1 of the 430 municipalities in Norway.

In 2009, total energy use amounted to 218 1 TWh, of which electricity accounted for about 50 per cent. The consumption of electricity declined by almmost 5 per cent in 2009.

Relatively low energy use per capita in Oslo

The stationary energy use in households in Norway was 9.4 MWh per capita in Norway in 2009. This is an increase from 9.2 MWh per capita in 2008. Oslo is one of the municipalities with the lowest energy use per capita in households. On average, households in Oslo used 7.9 MWh per capita in 2009. One of the reasons for the relatively low energy use per capita in Oslo is the high number of people living in flats.

Comparability with other statistics

The figures presented here differ somewhat from the figures presented in the Energy balance . Among other things, this is because energy use outside 5 nautical kilometres is not included in the statistics for energy use by municipality.

 

Uncertainty

The statistics are based on a combination of data on actual use of energy by municipality and estimates based on national and county figures.
