Natural gas and oil on the Cayman Islands

Energy consumption on the Cayman Islands

The most important figure in the energy balance of the Cayman Islands is the total consumption of
612.00 million kWh
of electric energy per year. Per capita this is an average of 8,982 kWh.

The Cayman Islands can completely be self-sufficient with domestically produced energy. The total production of all electric energy producing facilities is 650 m kWh, also 106 percent of own requirements. The rest of the domestically produced energy is either exported into other countries or unused. Along with pure consumption, the production, imports and exports play an important role. Other energy sources, such as natural gas or crude oil are also used.

Production capacities per energy source

The given production capacities for electric energy have a theoretical value, which can only be obtained under ideal conditions. They are measuring the generatable amount of energy, that would be reached under permanent and full use of all capacities of all power plants.

In practice this isn't possible, because e.g. solar collectors are less efficient under clouds. Also wind- and water-power plants are not always operating under full load. All these values are only useful in relation to other energy sources or countries.
