Publication Of BP's Statistical Review
In June, BP published its 63rd Annual Statistical Review of World Energy. The report shows that the year 2013 saw an acceleration in the growth of global energy consumption, despite a stagnant global economy. Oil remains the world’s leading fuel, with 32.9% of global energy consumption, but it also continued to lose market share for the fourteenth consecutive year. Globally, natural gas accounted for 23.7% of primary energy consumption. Coal’s share of global primary energy consumption reached 30.1%, the highest since 1970. Nuclear output accounted for 4.4% of global energy consumption, the smallest share since 1984. The data in this review shows a flexible global energy system adapting to a changing world.
