Energy consumption in Egypt grew 4.7% last year

2016 was another year of relatively weak growth for global energy consumption. That’s the primary takeaway from BP’s annual Statistical Review of World Energy, which treat as the most-quoted global study of energy consumption across the world. While worldwide energy consumption grew 1% last year (on par with 0.9% in 2015 and 1% in 2014 — and far off the ten-year average of 1.8%), consumption in Egypt rocketed up 4.7% last year against a ten-year average of 3.4% for Omm El Donia. In total, we accounted for 0.7% of the world’s energy consumption. The landing page for the review is here, and there are about a bn data points to play with in the linked XLSX datasheet and in the report itself (pdf).
