Resource Consumption by Country 2024

Two of the most important resources we use around the world are oil and energy. However, neither of these resources is used consistently by any country. While some countries use more of these resources, others use less. In this article, we will take a closer look at some of the statistics that involve oil and wattage resources and how countries are using them in 2023.

Oil remains one of the most used resources in the world, and the country of Qatar currently consumes the most. The country also consumes the largest amount of wattage. Overall, Qatar has an oil consumption rate of 19,120 per capita and a wattage consumption rate of 25,456 per capita.

Iceland is currently the country that uses the second-most amount of oil and wattage. It has an oil consumption rate of 18,177.30 per capita and a wattage consumption rate of 24,201.20 per capita.

Third place belongs to Trinidad and Tobago with an oil consumption rate of 14,537.60 per capita and a wattage consumption rate of 19,355.30. Bahrain and Kuwait round out the top five high-resource consumption countries. Bahrain has an oil consumption rate of 10,171.70 and Kuwait measures in at a rate of 9,757.40. Wattage consumption per capita rates for these countries are 13,542.60 for Bahrain and 12,991.10 per capita for Kuwait.

Just as some countries use more resources than others, some manage to conserve more resources.
