Primary Energy Consumption and GPD Per Capita, 2019

Source: bp Statistical Review of World Energy. World Bank. Note: Primary energy comprises commercially-traded fuels, including renewables used to generate electricity.

There is a proportional relationship between GPD per capita (adjusted for purchasing power parity) and the level of primary energy consumption. Economies above the trend tend to be major energy producers or have a substantial heavy manufacturing orientation. Economies below the trend are more oriented towards the service economy and have a higher share of alternative sources of energy.
