Graphic from the Department of Energy and Climate Change shows a breakdown of UK energy flows from source to end product for 2010
The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has produced its latest visualisation of UK energy flows, in this case referring to 2010.
The graphic shows the sources (including imports) and end points of energy in the UK, including quantities lost along the way and exported overseas. Click here for the full-size chart (scroll down to page 2).
Energy equivalent to 314.7 million tonnes of oil was either produced indigenously or imported in 2010, of which around half was in the form of petroleum.
Natural gas was the second largest input, with 107.9 million tonnes of oil equivalent (Mtoe), followed by coal, electricity and biofuels. Electricity in this case refers to nuclear, wind and hydroelectric energy, plus imported electricity.
