European energy use: by industry, by fuel, by country?

Europe comprises 7% of the world’s population, and 17% of its energy use. The purpose of this data-file is to disaggregate the energy use across 25 industries, six energy types and 28 countries.

The largest consumption categories are residential energy (24%), chemicals (14%), commercial energy (13%), road transport (9%) and iron and steel (6%).

The underlying data covers 25 industries, across materials, manufacturing, fuels and the CO2 emissions of each line-item; with underlying data spread across a dozen tabs.

We can also compare each industry’s energy consumption with its GDP (value added) and compensation paid to employees. This suggests which industries might be least painful to scale back amidst energy shortages.
