Total Energy consumption

Total energy consumption per capita is more than twice the EU average (5.7 toe), driven by an electricity consumption per capita that is three times the EU average and the highest in the world, at 22 600 kWh (2015).

The country's total energy consumption has been fluctuating since 2010...

Crude oil production

Oil and NGL production dropped by 50% between its peak level of 163 Mt in 2001 and 2013, when it reached 83 Mt. It rebounded since then to 87 Mt in 2015 (+7%) and increased slightly by 3% in 2016 (89 Mt)

Oil production began in 1969 with the exploitation of the Ekofisk field, followed by...

Oil products consumption

Oil product consumption grew slowly until 2010 (+1.2%/year between 2000 and 2010) and has been decreasing by almost 1.5%/year until 2015. It recovered slightly in 2016.

Natural gas consumption

Domestic natural gas consumption is relatively modest and varies strongly from one year to the next. Between 2000 and 2010 consumption increased at the rapid rate of 4%/year. It had dropped by 16% between 2010 and 2014 and restarted growth of 25% in 2015, bringing it to 6.2 bcm. It remained...

Coal consumption

Coal consumption is quite negligible. It fell by 7%/year, on average, between 2000 and 2010, but has since rebounded, driven by the metallurgical industry that represents close to 90% of the demand.

Power consumption

Electricity consumption has remained rather stable since 2010 (121 TWh in 2016, +2%), with fluctuations depending on how harsh the winter is, since electricity is the main source of heating. Before, it increased by 0.8%/year between 2000 and 2010.


Renewable in % electricity production

Targets for renewables are combined with energy efficiency targets (i.e. increase the contribution of renewables and energy savings by 30 TWh from 2001 to 2016 and by 40 TWh in 2020).

In 2015, the Government changed the depreciation rules for wind energy production to harmonize them with...
