This list of countries by electricity consumption is mostly based on The World Factbook.[1] For informational purposes several non-sovereign entities are also included in this list. In addition, the per capita data for many countries may be slightly inaccurate as population data may not be for the same year that the consumption data are. Population data were obtained from the List of countries by population in 2005, except for years other than 2005, in which case they were obtained from the Wikipedia pages for the corresponding countries/territories. Average power per capita was calculated according to the formula:[2]

Power = Consumption·1,000,000/(365.25·24), where Power is in Watts and Consumption is in MWh/year.
Rank Country Electricity consumption (MWh/year) Year of Data Source Population As of Average power per capita (Watts)
