Energy Efficiency Country Ranking
|Country||Energy Intensity (toe/million $)|
An interesting question in a world that is slowly running out of fossil fuel reserves is: how much energy does a country need to generate its wealth? The table gives the answer for a number of OECD countries, plus a few countries of special geopolitical interest. Keep in mind that geographical location has an inevitable influence on energy use; colder countries need more energy for space heating. The units in the right column represent tonnes of oil equivalent per million constant year 2000 international dollars.
Switzerland needs 1031 barrel of oil to generate 1 million $ income, Russia 4386.
