Do you know where the world’s electricity comes from?
The world is always on. No matter where you go or what time of day, electricity is constantly flowing and powering our everyday lives. As part of The Great Energy Challenge, National Geographic has created a fascinating interactive map that charts the world’s energy consumption statistics. Divided into six world regions, you can compare data between each region, as well as between 2008 and projected data for 2035!
With this tool, anyone can study the world as whole, looking at the total numbers and statistics for the different kinds of energy we use to power our lives such as: coal, oil, gas, nuclear, hydro, biomass, wind, geothermal and solar power. By moving the sliders, you can see the numbers change in the world power mix if we reduced certain resources and increased others. Go another layer down into the interactive map and examine specific countries and regions.
So explore National Geographic’s interactive map and infographic, Global Electric Outlook to learn more about our energy consumption.
