Changes in energy consumption and value added in services

  • Since 2017, rapid growth of energy consumption of services (+2.3%/year) and value added (+2%/year), almost at the same pace than before 2008. In contrast, electricity consumption has been growing 2.5 times slower than before 2008. 
  • During the post crisis period (2008-2014) strong contraction of total energy consumption (-0.7%/year) and a decrease in electricity consumption (-0.2%/year), despite a limited growth of value added (+0.6%/year)  
  • Before 2008, strong progression of the energy consumption (of which electricity) at the same rate as value added. .
