I-1. Overall Status
Transition of Final Energy Consumption by Sector
  • Final energy consumption in the industrial sector has remained generally steady since the oil crisis.
  • On the other hand, those of the commercial/residential and transportation sectors have increased significantly.
Source: Compiled by the Agency for National Resources and Energy based on Energy Balance Tables in Japan data
(Note) Note that, due to revision of the aggregation method in Energy Balance Tables in Japan, values for FY1990 onwards and values for preceding years are the results of utilizing different methods.

I-1. Overall Status
Primary Energy Consumption per GDP
  • Japanese primary energy consumption per GDP is the lowest in the world owing to various energy conservation measures taken for the respective sectors.
Source: IEA Energy Balance 2004
(Note) Primary energy consumption (tons in oil equivalent)/GDP (thousand US$) indicated in the ratio when the Japanese figure is set at 1. Both are actual figures for FY2002.

I-1. Overall Status
Rising Crude Oil Dependency on Middle Eastern Countries
  • The rate of crude oil dependency on Middle Eastern countries has largely surpassed the rate at the time of the oil crises. 77.5% (First oil crisis)→88.5% (FY2003)

CO2 Emitted from Energy Utilization in Japan
  • The COP3 (the 3rd Conference of Parties of UN Framework Convention on Climate Change) held in December 1997 agreed reduction targets of Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions assigned to each developed country and issued the agreement as the "Kyoto Protocol." Japan is responsible for reducing the average value of its total GHG in 2008 to 2012 by 6% in comparison with that in the 1990s. (US=-7%, EU=-8%)
  • Approximately 90% of Japan's GHG is energy-originated CO2.
