Energy consumption in East Timor
The most important measure in the energy balance of East Timor is the total consumption of
125.30 million kWh
of electric energy per year. Per capita this is an average of 99 kWh
East Timor can provide itself completely with self-produced energy. The total production of all electric energy producing facilities is 349 m kWh, also 279% of own requirements. The rest of the self-produced energy is either exported into other countries or unused. Along with pure consumptions the production, imports and exports play an important role. Other energy sources such as natural gas or crude oil are also used.Back to overview: Timor-Leste

Usage of renewable energies
Renewable energies include wind, solar, biomass and geothermal energy sources. This means all energy sources that renew themselves within a short time or are permanently available. Energy from hydropower is only partly a renewable energy. This is certainly the case with river or tidal power plants. Otherwise, numerous dams or reservoirs also produce mixed forms, e.g. by pumping water into their reservoirs at night and recovering energy from them during the day when there is an increased demand for electricity. Since it is not possible to clearly determine the amount of generated energy, all energies from hydropower are displayed separately.
In 2015, renewable energies accounted for around 18.2 percent of actual total consumption .inCountry().. The following chart shows the percentage share from 2002 to 2015:
