Definition

This graph presents the breakdown for 2011 of the different sources of energy used in the total consumption of energy in France, both in general and for Transportation, Industry and Housing and Service sectors, respectively.

Analysis

Natural gas is used more than electricity in industry and residential, but not in services where it ranks second after electricity (due to specific uses such as air conditioning). In industry, gas is used mainly for process heating and also as a raw material for the chemical industry (fertiliser and refining).
