Total Energy consumption

Total per capita consumption reached 5.6 toe in 2018. Per capita electricity consumption was around 6 400 kWh.

Total energy consumption has been increasing rapidly since 2016, by almost 5%/year, to 806 Mtoe. Before it decreased slightly between 2012 and 2015 (-1%/year) due to the economic crisis.

In 2017, gas represented the largest share of consumption (53%), followed by oil ...

Crude oil production

Oil production increased slowly between 2004 and 2016 (1.4%/year), remained stable in 2017 (547 Mt), to then increase further in 2018 to 556 Mt. In 2018, Russia was the world's third largest crude oil producer, after the Saudi Arabia and the USA.

In June 2018, Russia and OPEC countries agreed to produce more crude oil to help reduce prices and prevent a supply shortage. This was ...

Oil products consumption

Oil product consumption has increased consistently by 2%/year between 2004 and 2018 (153 Mt in 2018). Industry (including non-energy uses) is the largest consuming sector with 45% of total oil products ahead of transport (34%) and the residential-tertiary-agriculture sector (9%).

Natural gas consumption

Gas consumption decreased between 2011 and 2016, but soared by 7% in 2017 and again by 5% in 2018 (505 bcm in 2018) driven by growth in the industry and residential sectors, and also others.

Gas is mainly consumed in the electricity sector (39%, i.e. the same as the 2000 level of 39%). Industry represents 19% and the residential-tertiary sector 14% (down from 15% in ...

Power consumption

Total electricity consumption has increased slightly since 2010 (0.9%/year), with a net acceleration since 2015 (1.9%/year) reaching 929 TWh in 2018.

Industry is the main electricity consumer with 36% of the total (a decrease on its 2000 level of 46%), ahead of the tertiary sector with 18% (up compared to 2000, when it stood at 9%) and the residential sector with 17% (20% in 2000). ...

Renewable in % electricity production

In 2014, the Government set a target of a 2.5% share of wind and solar in electricity generation by 2020 (State Programme on Energy Efficiency and Energy Development), which implies about 14.7 GW of new renewable capacity by 2020. This target will not be reached, with only around 1 GW currently planned or under construction.

In 2016, the government set the available capacity for ...

CO2 fuel combustion/CO2 emissions

In 2015, Russia submitted to the UNFCCC its 2030 INDC, which aims to limit GHG emissions to 70-75% of 1990 levels by the year 2030 (presidential decree N°752). Russia signed the Paris agreement in 2016, but its ratification and the submission of the definitive NDC are still pending, expected to be completed by end-2019. Considering the fall in emissions observed in the 1990s and the role ...
