List of countries by electricity consumption

This list of countries by electric energy consumption is mostly based on The World Factbook.[1] Several non-sovereign entities are also included for informational purposes, with their parent state noted. The per capita data for many countries may be slightly inaccurate as population data may not be for the same year that the consumption data are. Population data were obtained from the List of countries by population in 2016, except for years other than 2016, in which case they were obtained from the Wikipedia pages for the corresponding countries/territories. Average power per capita was calculated according to the formula:[2]

Electric energy per capita [ in watt-hour ] = Total population electricity consumption [ in kW·h/yr ] * 1,000/(365.25 x 24)/population.
Electric power per capita [ in watt ] = Total population electricity consumption [ in kW·h/yr ] * 0.114077116 /population.
1 kW·h/yr = 1,000 Wh/(365.25 x 24)h = 0.11408 Watt
