The Energy Trends report for 2021 has been published today by Statistics Jersey. 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.
Summary for 2021
It is important to note that due to the global pandemic, activity related to travel and some economic sectors was reduced during 2020 and parts of 2021. This is expected to have had an impact on the supply and use of energy in those areas, especially in 2020, before a partial recovery to pre-pandemic levels in 2021.
- Almost all of Jersey’s energy supply was imported; about 2% was produced on Island as electricity generated by the Energy Recovery Facility and Jersey Electricity solar panels
- Petroleum products accounted for about three-fifths (61%) of Jersey’s energy supply; electricity (imported and on-Island generated) accounted for the remainder (39%)
- Jersey’s total primary energy supply (TPES) was 6% more than in 2020
- Total final energy consumption (FEC) was 6% more than in 2020
- Energy consumption per head of resident population was 1.4 toe and was below that of the UK (1.9 toe)
- Of total energy used, just under half (42%) was by households, around a third (31%) for transportation (predominantly road) and a similar amount (27%) by industry and government
