Cold weather raised energy consumption in housing in 2016
17 Nov 2017
In 2016, electricity used in housing amounted to 66 terawatt hours (TWh). Consumption rose by eight per cent from the previous year. The year 2016 was clearly colder than 2015, although the heating demand during the year was still lower than the long-term heating demand. Compared to the previous year, consumption of heating energy in indoor spaces rose by ten per cent. The energy consumption of household appliances went up by five per cent, which was mainly due to the grown heating demand of cars. The data are based on Statistics Finland's statistics on energy consumption in households.

Description: Statistics on energy consumption in households describe the annual amount and structure of energy consumption related to housing and from which sources energy is acquired for heating residential buildings. Statistics on energy consumption in households are used concerning heating of spaces, domestic water and sauna, as well as household appliances. Consumption of heating energy in spaces is presented in the statistics according to type of building and energy source. Energy consumption of household appliances is divided into consumption of home electrical equipment, lighting and cooking. The same concepts are used in describing energy consumption in households as in other energy statistics.
