Which European households use the most electricity?
When it comes to electricity consumption in the European Union, Finland and Sweden are at the very top of the charts. That's probably unsurprising considering the long and dark winters up north. Finnish households consumed 3.9 MWh per capita in 2014 while in Sweden, that figure was 3.8 MWh per capita. France came third in electricity consumption with households there using 2.3 MWh per capita each year. Romanians tend to use the least electricity of any European nation, consuming a mere 0.6 MWh per capita i n 2014.
This chart shows electricity consumption of EU households in 2014 (MWh per capita).
