UAE Annual Energy Use Reaches 1.8b MWh

Nearly 1.8 billion megawatt hours (MWh) of energy was consumed by the UAE to achieve a total annual GDP (gross domestic product) of $377 billion in 2013, according to Heliocentris, a German market leader in energy saving solutions.
This amount of energy could be sufficient to power all of the nation’s households for more than 15 years and around 70 million households for a whole year, tradearabia reported.
A research report by World Resources Institute revealed that in 2013, the UAE used 481 tons of oil equivalent (TOE) for every $1 million of its GDP.
By comparison, a predominantly urban population such as Japan uses 154 TOEs for every $1 million of GDP, more than two thirds less than the UAE.
On the basis of a total annual GDP of $377 billion in 2013, the energy used to achieve the total GDP equates to 1.8 billion MWh.
The country is adding nuclear, renewable, and coal-fired electricity generating capacity, but currently relies primarily on natural gas.
