Primary energy consumption in Russia 2009-2019

Consumption of primary energy in Russia amounted to approximately 29.8 exajoules in 2019, marking a slight decrease compared to the previous year. Russia had the fourth highest primary energy consumption worldwide after China, the United States, and India.

Primary energy sources in Russia

In Russia, natural gas occupies the largest portion of consumed primary energy (PE), which is defined as the energy obtained from resources in their raw form prior to any transformations by humans. Furthermore, the country actively uses crude oil and coal, while hydropower and renewables combined account for less than six percent of the total PE consumption.

Primary energy consumption forecast for Russia

In 2040, primary energy consumption in Russia was forecast at 750 million metric tons of oil equivalent, rising by approximately 50 million metric tons of oil equivalent since 2017. Gas would remain the country’s major primary energy source, and its consumption would increase gradually year-over-year. The use of primary energy by the industrial sector was expected to decrease slowly, in contrast to construction and transportation.
