Drivers of energy consumption variation
- Industrial energy consumption was around 40 Mtoe lower in 2019 than in 2000.
- This lower consumption is mainly due to energy savings (-60 Mtoe) and, to a lesser extent, to structural changes to less energy intensive branches (-24 Mtoe).
- Change in industrial activity (measured with the production index) had a relatively limited effect (31 Mtoe), because of the recession on part of the period.
