UK ENERGY INDUSTRY UK STOCK RESERVES OTHER LOSSES 2013 Q2 IMPORTS EXPORTS SS INDIGENOUS PRODUCTION FINAL CONSUMPTION WASTE = 100 TWh OTHER LOSSES 100,000,000,000 kWh = 100 TWh KEY NOTES 3 month energy use of typical UK household = 1.16 kWh Indigenous Production embodies all Primary Energy. Gas includes all Natural gas, in both dry and liquid form. Oil covers crude oil, natural All data collected is for the second The subcatagories of Renewable Final consumption is the total UK Stock Reserves is energy that OTHER FINAL USER A COAL E HYDRO quarter of 2013, taken from The Department for Energy & Climate Change. The data primarily used two units of measurement; CO NUCLEAR energy consumed by end users. Industry is all manufacturing process, including Iron & Steel. Transport includes all forms of transport including personal and commercial. Domestic is energy consumed at home, whilst Other final user is mostly agriculture, public admin and commerce. Non is stored during warmer months (Q2 and Q3) for use during during colder months (Q1 and Q4) when demand for energy increases. During these months UK Stock Reserves would become an input from the graph, rather than output. Other losses include energy losses from Energy industry use, transformation processes (coke manufacture, oil refining etc) and general energy A INDUSTRY energy cover numerous sources from across the UK. Wind/Solar includes all Offshore and Onshore gas liquids and feedstocks, which are all refined for petroleum. Wind, Solar Photovoltaics, Shoreline Wave and Tidal energy. Bioenergy covers Landfill gas, Biodegradable Municipal Solid Waste, Animal Biomass, Anaerobic Digestion and Plant Biomass. Hydro covers all Hydroelectric power, both small scale and large scale. WIND/ SOLAR NON i ENERGY USE Thousand Tonnes of Oil Equivalent (KTOE) and Terawatt hour (TWh). KTOE is used as a consolodating unit for fuel used, and TWh for the corresponding electricity generated. 1 KTOE = 0.01163 TWh 1 TWh = 85.9845 KTOE OIL 4 ELECTRICITY TRANSPORT Coal includes manufactured solid fuels such as coke oven coke, coke breeze and tars. (Derived gases coke and blast furnace gas count as 'Other Fuels' in the generation of electricity, along with waste products from chemical processes). oven gas IMPORT/ EXPORT SSS A GAS A BIOENERGY 8 OTHER FUELS DOMESTIC energy use comes mostly from oil where the raw material isn't used All graphical data is to scale. for energy, eg. plastic production. loss.
