The key message to take from this infographic could well be the rise of renewable energy in the UK energy market, as the push by successive governments for green energy has led to a vast increase in the number of renewable energy sources being utilised.
Another key issue is how this energy is being used, so for this we have looked at which sectors use the most energy. Perhaps unsurprisingly it is the transport sector that uses the most energy (38%), followed by domestic usage at 27%.
This, of course, takes quite a macro look at the UK energy market. To make it more obviously relevant to the individual, the piece finally covers where the money you pay annually for energy is actually going and compares home energy usage in the UK with the US. Unsurprisingly heating accounts for about twice as much domestic energy usage in the UK.

How interesting! I’m not surprised to see 22% in US at home energy use is cooling! A very interesting thing will be to see how within the next 10 years, that graphic is going to change and include “Car-charging” as one of the major posts. For us, charging the EV is quite a substantial amount (and more and more people will have EVs going forward).

You’re right! Probably these stats will rapidly change because of car charging
Thanks for passing by Anna!! 💚
