Energy sources in Liechtenstein

Energy consumption in Liechtenstein

The most important figure in the energy balance of Liechtenstein is the total consumption of
393.60 million kWh
of electric energy per year. Per capita this is an average of 10,289 kWh.
Liechtenstein can partly provide itself with self-produced energy. The total production of all electric energy producing facilities is 68 m kWh. That is 17% of the countries own usage. The rest of the needed energy is imported from foreign countries. 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.

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 2019, renewable energies accounted for around 56.1 percent of actual total consumption in Liechtenstein. The following chart shows the percentage share from 2000 to 2019:
