Agency for Natural Resources and EnergyFY2013 Energy Supply and Demand Report (Preliminary Report)
The Agency for Natural Resources and Energy (ANRE) hereby announces a preliminary report on Japan’s energy supply and demand situation for FY2013, based on the analysis of a variety of energy-related preliminary statistics.
1. Highlights of the preliminary report
1) Final energy consumption
The overall final energy consumption showed a slight decrease by 0.9% year on year. Looking at the breakdown by energy source, usage of petroleum decreased by 1.4% and city gas decreased by 2.8%, while coal increased by 1.0% and electricity increased by 0.3% on a year-on-year basis respectively.
Compared with FY2010, before the Great East Japan Earthquake, the consumption of final energy decreased by 5.0% overall. Looking at the breakdown by energy source, electricity and petroleum consumption significantly decreased by 7.7% and 5.4% respectively, city gas decreased by 1.2%, and coal decreased by 1.0%.
2) Domestic supply of primary energy
The overall domestic supply of primary energy showed a slight increase by 0.9% from the previous year. Looking at the breakdown by energy source, domestic supplies of coal and renewable/unused energy also increased by 7.9% and 6.1% year on year respectively, whereas nuclear energy significantly decreased by 41.8%, petroleum showed a slight decrease, and natural gas remained more or less flat.
Compared with FY2010, before the Great East Japan Earthquake, the domestic supply of primary energy as a whole decreased by 4.8%. Looking at the breakdown by energy source, nuclear energy substantially decreased by 96.8%, whereas domestic supplies showed increases in natural gas by 20.2%, coal by 5.4%, petroleum by 2.2%, and renewable/unused energy by 9.1%.
3) Energy-oriented carbon dioxide emissions
Energy-oriented carbon dioxide emissions increased by 1.4% from the previous year as a whole due to the increase in the consumption of fossil fuels. Compared with FY2010, before the Great East Japan Earthquake, such emissions increased by 85 million tons in FY2012 and further increased by 16 million tons in FY2013, resulting in an increase of 101 million tons in total.
1: Concerning a standard caloric value for the unit conversion from respective unique units to energy units and a carbon emission efficient for such conversion from energy units to carbon units, METI started applying the FY2013 revised values to the Energy Supply and Demand Reports from this fiscal year.
2: Among the figures of the final energy consumption by sector, those of energy consumption in the service sector and non-manufacturing sector as well as some of the manufacturing sectors (food manufacturing and other sectors/SME manufacturing sector) are estimated values calculated based on the Input-Output Tables for Japan and the National Accounts.
3: Energy volume data shown in the reference use energy units measured in joules. Crude oil equivalent kl data (in 1 million kl) is derived from the PJ (petajoule: 10 to the 15th power joules) data as shown herein, multiplied by 0.0258. (Crude oil equivalence: 1 liter crude oil = 9250 kcal = 38.7 MJ; 1MJ = 0.0258 liters)
