What Countries Are The Most Energy Efficient?

Spoiler:

1. Germany
2. Italy
3. EU
4. China

13. USA

[wikipedia.org] – List of countries by energy intensity (2003)

Country Ton of oil/million $ GDP
Italy 123
UK 141
Japan 154
Germany 164
France 170
Netherlands 172
USA 222
China 231
Russia 519

Countries like Russia and to a lesser extent the US with lots of resources don’t need to invest too much time and effort in reducing energy waste as other (European) countries and Japan, that have few natural energy resources.

The video and Wikipedia differ about China, probably due to 12 years time difference.

List 1990 – 2014

[worldbank.org] – Energy intensity level of primary energy (MJ/$2011 PPP GDP)

[yearbook.enerdata.net] – Energy intensity of GDP at constant purchasing power parities

It is encouraging that the world needs ever less energy to produce the same: -1.5% per year.
