Energy consumption in NiueThe most important figure in the energy balance of Niue is the total consumption of
2.79 million kWhof electric energy per year. Per capita this is an average of 1,395 kWh.
Niue can completely be self-sufficient with domestically produced energy. The total production of all electric energy producing facilities is three m kWh, also 108 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 sourceThe 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.
