How much power is produced in a day, week, month, and year?





Question: How much power is produced in a day, week, month, and year?

Answer: The International Energy Agency provides a breakdown of the global energy use per sector. In 2008 industry use was 27,273 TWh, transport use was 26,742 TWh, and residential use was 35,319 TWh, and non-energy use (defined as fuels that are used as raw materials in the different sectors and are not consumed as a fuel or transformed into another fuel) was 8,668 TWh. This gives a total global annual energy use of 98,022 TWh and the total world energy supply for 2008 was 143,851 TWh.

This data would provide the following answers to your question:

  • 394 TWh of energy produced in a day and 269 TWh of power used in a day.
  • 2766 TWh of energy produced in a week and 1885 TWh of power used in a week.
  • 11988 TWh of energy produced in a month and 8169 TWh of power used in a month.
  • 143,851 TWh of energy produced in a year and 98,022 TWh of power used in a year.
