Increased electricity consumption

The use of energy in Norwegian municipalities declined by 0.2 per cent in 2008. The consumption of electricity increased, while the consumption of fossil fuels decreased.

In 2008, total energy use amounted to 224 TWh, of which electricity accounted for 52 per cent.

Lower electricity consumption in households

Household use of energy for stationary use amounted to almost 44 TWh in 2008. This is almost the same as in 2007. Electricity accounted for more than 80 per cent of the total consumption. In 90 of the municipalities, more than 80 per cent of the households’ use of energy was covered by electricity.

Relatively low energy use per capita in Oslo

The stationary energy use in households in Norway was 9.2 MWh per capita in 2008. This is a decline from 9.5 MWh per capita in 2007. Oslo is one of the municipalities with the lowest energy use per capita. On average, households in Oslo used 7.8 MWh per capita in 2008.

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.
