11.3- Final Energy Consumption by Sectors

Final energy consumption by sector type is a driving force indicator. The trend in final energy consumption by fuel type and by sector provides a broad indication of progress in reducing final energy consumption and associated environmental impacts by the different end-use sectors (transportation, industry, services and households).

The total final energy consumption in Turkey was 111.4 Mtoe in 2017, with an increase of 164% compared to 1990, 59% compared to 2005 and 6.79% compared to 2016 (Table 28). Large increases in final energy consumption could be attributes to the growing economy in Turkey. However, in order to mention an improvement, energy intensity must decrease with improvement in energy efficiency. For instance, in the EU-28, owing to improvements in energy efficiency, the final energy consumption decreased by 6.6% in the last 10 years according data of 2016 [73].

In 2017 in Turkey, the highest share of final energy consumption occured in residential and services sector (%32.32) and industrial sector (31.71%), followed by transportation (25.51%) and agriculture/forestry and fishing sectors (3.84%). The share of non-energy consumption was 6.62%

Compared to the EU countries, in 2016, the residential and services sector took the highest share in energy consumption with 36.4%; followed by transportation (30.5%), industry (23.0%) and agriculture/forestry and fishing (2.1%) in the EU-28 member states. The remaining 8% belonged to non-energy consumption [73].
