Carbon Brief has compiled key indicators on the world’s emissions, energy and electricity. Use the tabs at the top to explore our interactive data dashboard.
For example, it allows you to see how the UK’s electricity demand has changed over the past 30 years and where that electricity has come from, as well as comparing the UK’s usage and mix to other countries.
Data on energy and emissions are from the BP Statistical Review of World Energy 2015. The review is updated once per year, usually in mid-June. Data on total electricity consumption along with figures for nuclear and renewable power are also from the BP review.
The BP review – and hence our dashboard – does not include all countries. While the World Development Indicators cover almost all countries (Taiwan is one exception), they are less up-to-date and lack the same detail.
