Every organisation gives its own figures. As far as I know, just taking into account the energy content of oil, around 10,6 KWh per liter (from 10.900 Kcal/Kg plus its density, around 0,84 ton/m3).

Regarding world figures, the world consumes around 100.000 TWh year (EIA figures), equivalent close to 10.000 Mtoe....so, 1 Mtoe is equal to 10 MWh, not KWh as the Petroleum Engineers Society.

From another póint of view, the World Energy Council estimates in close to 900.000 Mtoe the fossil energy reserves which combined with 10.000 Mtoe of yearly consumption give us less thanh 100 years to do something with our fossil consumption.

Anyway, hope to help a little.

Thank you for collecting this info. If these figures are converted to international units, they are enlightening to people outside of the US, and for all of us, become remarkably useful for further calculation elsewhere.

Multiplying by 43 MJ per kilogram and dividing by seconds per year, gives a conversion factor of 1.36 kW = 1 TOE/a. Thus total power per person is:

11.39 kW UnitedStates
11.13 kW Canada
8.73 kW Finland
7.88 kW Belgium
7.79 kW Australia
7.77 kW Sweden
7.77 kW Norway
6.63 kW NewZealand
6.49 kW Netherlands
5.79 kW France
5.63 kW Japan
5.63 kW Germany
5.30 kW UnitedKingdom
5.26 kW Ireland
5.05 kW Switzerland
4.96 kW Denmark
4.80 kW Austria
4.05 kW Italy

It is per person per year. But: 1) It should be THOUSAND toe, not toe; 2) the statistic "89.51 toe per person" as the sum of the individual-country toes per person is NON-SENSICAL; 3) Where are the rest of the countries in the world, or indeed world statistics?; and 4) the site should use SI units, namely Gigajoules (GJ). This site is, in a word, of no use.

I believe it is by year, Colin, but like you I don't know... I believe, though, based off of the definition (to me), it sounds like it's per person per year. :)

What is the TOE per person based on ?

I hope I am correct in assuming the statistic is based on one year per person, but I'd like to be assured of this.

The Society of Petroleum Engineers gives the conversion:
1 tonne of oil equivalent = 11,630 kilowatt hours
