Iran was ranked the world’s 11th largest energy consumer in 2019.
Based on Global Energy Statistical Yearbook 2020 data issued by enerdata.net, the country of 82 million people used a total of 258,000 tons of oil equivalent in one year, ILNA reported. 
The figure was 150,000 tons of oil equivalent in Turkey with the same population. Tons of oil equivalent (toe) is a unit of energy used to describe the energy content of all fuels, typically on a very large scale. 
China, the US and India with 3.2 million (toe), 2.2 million (toe) and 900,000 (toe) topped the list respectively.
Daily energy consumption of Iranian households equals the energy produced by burning 1 million barrels of oil (per day) that is nearly eight times that of the most energy-efficient countries like Turkey.
