Total energy consumption, including the statistical difference, corresponds to the total energy input.
Total energy consumption includes the energy consumption in the industry, transport, residential and service sectors. Energy losses, each sector’s own consumption, and where energy commodities are used for non-energy purposes are included.
Total energy consumption
Total energy consumption, TWh
Total energy consumption was just over 600 TWh at the beginning of the 2000s but has decreased somewhat during the 2010s.
Total energy consumption including losses, TWh
Final energy consumption per energy commodity
Final energy consumption refers to the energy consumption in various sectors but without losses that occur when converting an energy commodity.
Total final energy consumption
The total final energy consumption, which includes the industry, transport, residential and service sectors, has been relatively stable during the period 1970–2021 and varied between 350 - 400 TWh. However, there has been a clear transition from a large proportion of petroleum products in the 70s and 80s to electricity, district heating and biofuel.
Final energy consumption per energy product, TWh
Final energy consumption in industry
In the industrial sector, energy is mainly used to drive industrial processes. Biofuels and electricity are the dominant energy commodities in Swedish industry.
Final energy consumption in industry, TWh
Final energy consumption in the transport sector
Diesel and petrol are the dominant energy commodity in the transport sector.
Final energy consumption in the transport sector, TWh
Final energy consumption in the residential, service, and other sectors
The residential and service sector accounts for almost 40 percent of the total energy use in Sweden. The combined sector includes households, public administration, commerce, agriculture, forestry, fishing, and construction.
