Energy consumption on the Falkland Islands

The most important measure in the energy balance of the Falkland Islands is the total consumption of

15.81 million kWh

per year. Per capita this is an average of 5,394 kWh.


Falkland Islands can provide itself completely with self-produced energy. The total production of all energy producing facilities is 17 m kWh, also 108% des Eigenbedarfs. The rest of the self-produced energy is either exportet into other countries or unused. Along with pure consumptions the production, imports and exports play an important role.

Production capacities per energy source

The given production capacities have a theoretical value, which could only be obtainable 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 unter 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.
