Agency for Natural Resources and Energy FY 2013 Energy Supply and Demand Report (Revised Report)
The Agency for Natural Resources and Energy (ANRE) has released a revised report on Japan’s energy supply and demand situation for FY 2013, based on the results of a variety of energy-related statistic.
1. Highlights of the revised report
(1) Final energy consumption
The overall final energy consumption decreased by 1.0% year-on-year, which shows a decrease for three consecutive years. Regarding the breakdown by sector, the final energy consumption by the business sector, the household sector, and the transportation sector decreased by 0.1%, 2.6%, and 2.4% on a year-on-year basis, respectively. Compared with FY 2010, before the Great East Japan Earthquake, the final energy consumption decreased by 4.9% overall. Regarding the breakdown by sector, the final energy consumption by the business sector, the household sector, and the transportation sector decreased by 5.4%, 7.4%, and 1.5%, respectively.
(2) Domestic supply of primary energyf
The overall domestic supply of primary energy showed an increase by 0.8% from the previous year. Regarding the breakdown by energy source, the domestic supply of coal, hydro, and renewable/unused energy increased by 8.5%, 3.6% and 1.8% on a year-on-year basis, respectively, while that of nuclear energy significantly decreased by 41.6%, that of petroleum showed a slight decrease, and that of natural gas remained more or less flat. Compared with FY 2010, before the Great East Japan Earthquake, the domestic supply of primary energy as a whole decreased by 5.2%. Regarding the breakdown by energy source, the domestic supply of nuclear energy substantially decreased by 96.8%, while domestic supply of natural gas, coal, and petroleum showed increases of 19.8%, 5.9%, and 1.8%, respectively.
(3) Energy-oriented carbon dioxide emissions
Energy-oriented carbon dioxide emissions increased by 1.1% from the previous year as a whole due to the increase in the consumption of fossil fuels. Compared with FY 2010, before the Great East Japan Earthquake, emissions increased by 8.4%. Compared with FY 2005, emissions increased by 1.3%.
1: The Comprehensive Energy Statistics, which are the basis for the Energy Supply and Demand Report, as well as the standard caloric values by energy source and carbon emission coefficient used in the Comprehensive Energy Statistics, have been revised. Therefore, please note that sector categories and values differ from those in the preliminary report published on November 14, 2014. For details of the revisions, visit the pages on the Comprehensive Energy Statistics on the ANRE website.
2: This revised report has been compiled based on the final values of relevant primary statistics, with some exceptions where final values are not yet available, and some data in the statistics used were assumed. Please note that these primary statistics may be revised in the future and so may the FY 2012 Energy Supply and Demand Report accordingly at the time of announcement of the next fiscal year's Energy Supply and Demand Report.
