Definition

This graph represents the breakdown of the different sources of energy used in the total consumption of energy in France in 2016, both in general and respectively for Transportation, Industry and Housing and Service sectors.

 

Analysis

The use of natural gas is equivalent to the use of electricity in industry and residential. However, in the service sector, because of specific uses such as air conditioning, gas ranks second after electricity.

In industry, gas is mainly used for process heating and also as a raw material for the chemical industry (fertiliser and refining).
