Global patterns of energy supply and consumption. Global energy supply and consumption is not evenly distributed. Some places have an energy surplus, whereas others have an energy deficit. Residential energy conservation and efficiency programs are strategic interventions to reduce consumption and increase affordability. However, the inability to identify and distinguish between high energy consumers and highly energy inefficient households has led to ineffective program by: Global energy consumption growth slowed down in (+%) compared to an average 2%/year over the period, in a context of slower economic growth. Energy consumption increased at a slower pace than in previous years in China (+%), the world’s largest consumer since , in Russia (+%) and in India (+% only). times the world average of non-hydro renewables. Total consumption is growing at % per year and globally at % per year, but from a small base. As a percentage of total energy consumption, Canada falls below the world average with % of primary energy provided by non-hydro renewables versus % globally.

There is concern over the environmental impact of charcoal use for cooking in urban areas; however, studies have mainly been limited to Africa and South Asia.

In particular, households’ choices concerning energy and transport modes have direct implications for the challenging issue of climate change. Total residential energy use in OECD countries is expected to increase by an average of % per year from to Energy Consumption and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Emissions Total Energy Consumption. End-use demand in Ontario was 3 petajoules (PJ) in The largest sector for energy demand was industrial at 37% of total demand, followed by transportation at 29%, residential at 18%, and commercial at 16% (Figure 6).Ontario’s total energy demand was the 2 nd largest in Canada, and the 8 th largest . determine how many Canadian households are facing relatively high energy costs.
