Primary energy consumption in Italy by fuel 2018-2019

In Italy, the primary energy consumption decreased between 2018 and 2019. In detail, the level of consumption of oil and coal decreased, while natural gas increased. Primary energy consumption describes the direct use of an energy source, without considering conversion or transformation processes.  

 Fossil fuels 

Natural gas and oil not only remained the main energy sources, but also experienced a growth trend between 2014 and 2018. More specifically, the role of natural gas became increasingly important in the Italian energy mix. As a matter of fact, in 2018, natural gas and oil consumption were almost equivalent.  

Renewable energy

On the other hand, the consumption of renewable energy sources peaked in 2014, reaching 14.8 million tons of oil equivalent, before slightly decreasing up to 2018. Also, the consumption of hydro sources declined. Among renewable sources, solar power accounted for the greatest installed capacity in 2018, and it is expected to remain predominant also in the future.
