Energy Trends 2008

Produced by the Statistics Jersey (Strategic Policy, Planning and Performance)
Authored by Statistics Unit and published on 17 Jun 2009
Prepared internally, no external cost


The Energy Trends report looks at the supply and use of various fuels such as electricity, gas and petroleum products. It also focuses on changes over time.

The 2008 report shows:

  • Total final energy demand in Jersey in 2008 was 184,000 toe (2.14 million MWh), similar to 2007
  • final consumption of electricity increased by 1% between 2007 and 2008. Over the same period road fuel use increased by 2% (unleaded up 0.1%, diesel up 7%) heating oil use rose by 2% and consumption of gas oil (excluding electricity generation) fell by 2%
  • in 2008 about two-thirds of all energy used was a type of petroleum product, with road fuels (petrol and diesel) accounting for about a quarter of total final energy demand
  • household energy consumption was 4% higher than in 2007, reflecting increases across all of the fuel types used by domestic consumers
  • in 2008 Jersey's total primary energy supply was 194,000 toe (2.25 million MWh), a decrease of 4% on 2007, a result of oil companies building fuel stocks in 2008 in contrast to 2007 when fuel stocks were consumed
  • essentially all of Jersey's primary energy needs and 96% of electricity were imported
  • average domestic energy bills rose by 27% for electricity and decreased by 10% for gas between 2008 and 2009. The cost of heating oil in Spring 2009 was 35% lower than in the same period of 2007
  • provisional data show that energy-related carbon emissions fell by about 17%
  • between 2007 and 2008, due to the lower production of on-island electricity in 2008 compared to 2007. Removing the effect of electricity generation, emissions in 2008 were similar to those in 2005 and 2006.
