Japan - electricity consumption 2000-2015

Electricity consumption in Japan from 2000 to 2015 (in billion kilowatt hours)

by Statista Research Department, last edited Apr 17, 2018
Japan - electricity consumption 2000-2015 This statistic represents Japan's electricity consumption from 2000 through 2015. In 2015, the Asian country consumed approximately 934 billion kilowatt hours of electricity.
Japan’s electricity sector

Japan’s electricity transmission is divided by two historical regions that run different main - frequencies. The eastern region, including Tokyo, runs at 50 Hz and the western region, including Osaka and Kyoto, runs at 60 Hz. Both regions acquired their first generators in the 1890s. In 2013, Japan consumed about 935 billion kilowatt hours of electricity, a slight decrease from 2002 consumption levels at 941 billion kilowatt hours. During this year, Japan was one of the highest consumers of electricity in the world; surpassed only by China and the United States which totaled 4.9 trillion kilowatt hours and 3.9 trillion kilowatt hours, respectively. Price of electricity averaged about 28 U.S. cents per kilowatt hours in Japan in 2015.

Like many other developed countries, Japan has gradually increased its consumption of renewable energy sources, which totaled 11.6 million metric tons of oil equivalent in 2014 from 4.2 million metric tons of oil equivalent in 1998. The country’s main renewable energy source is hydropower, primarily from large and medium sized hydropower facilities. Nuclear energy was also once a strategic priority in Japan as well, however, the Fukushima disaster in 2011 promptly lead to a new energy policy that no longer relied on nuclear energy. By September 2013, all nuclear reactors in the country went offline.
