Energy consumption in the United Kingdom - Million tonnes of oil equivalent, 1970 - 2010

Total energy consumption in the UK has fluctuated only slightly during the last four decades, however there have been gargantuan shifts in how we are using it and where it is sourced. Much of the media's attention has recently focused on the uptake of renewable energy, however in reality these changes are dwarfed by the enormous swings seen in other areas. The fall in industrial consumption and rise in other areas also helps to paint a picture of our society today.
