Country Thousand  bbl/day
Russia 9,933
Saudi 9,759
US 9,140

 Top Coal Producers:

Country Thousand short tons
China 3,362,050
US 1,072,752
India 611,444

Which country has the highest energy net consumption?

Why is power generation of interest?

NRG Expert’s Power Generator Database and Market Intelligence predicts that our energy demands will grow by another 53% by 2050. Plus in the next 10 years alone, NRG Expert reveals that our global power generation will increase 42%. Companies, governments, and investors need to work out how to support this growth.

To help companies with complex energy forecasts, NRG Expert has built up a global fuel database which outlines data and information on:

–       Sources of energy

–       Annual capacity by fuel type

–       Net annual fuel generation

–       Future power projects by country

–       Annual energy consumption

–       Coal, gas, oil reserves by country

–       Carbon dioxide emissions

–       Existing and new power plant listings

The database is supplied together with a free copy of NRG Expert’s Energy Efficiency Report.

 “Data on sources of energy is very powerful for investors, companies and governments as it helps them forecast future energy requirements.” Max Krangle, Managing Director, NRG Expert
