Energy


Greenland has basically a large demand for energy due to the Arctic climate and long distances. Energy consumption is estimated at 11,033 TJ in 2011. It is approx. 30 per cent. more than in 1990, when energy is solely derived from fossil fuels such as diesel, kerosene and petrol. Since 1990, Greenland has built five hydroelectric plants that supply the population in Nuuk, Qaqortoq and Narsaq, Sisimiut, Ilulissat and Tasiilaq with energy. In addition, Greenland also produced so-called waste heat by burning waste. The renewable energy from hydropower and waste heat amounted to approx. 11 per cent. of total energy consumption in 2011. While hydropower is CO2 neutral, there is a greenhouse gas emissions from the consumption of fossil fuels. In 2011, the total emission of greenhouse gases from energy consumption of 724 Gg CO2 equivalents. This is an increase of approx. 15 per cent. compared to 1990, and corresponds to an emission per. capita of 12.8 tons of CO2 equivalents.

2010 Energy Statistics in Greenland

12 December 2011
Energy Statistics in Greenland 2010
The annual report on energy consumption in Greenland on households and business now holds figures for the period 2006-2010. The figures show the development of energy consumption and allow for evaluation of Greenlands obligations in relation to the Kyoto-protocol regarding reduction of CO2-emissions. In 2010 emission of CO2 from energy consumption was 675,920 ton. This is 7,3 pct. higher than in 1990 and 14,7 pct. higher than in 2009.
