Energy in Northern Ireland

The Energy in Northern Ireland report is published by Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency statisticians within the Department for the Economy's Analytical Services Unit (ASU).


The Energy in Northern Ireland report is a new publication, first published in March 2016, which aims to provide a comprehensive and accessible overview of key statistics and information relating to energy in Northern Ireland. The report endeavours to present a disparate range of existing and emerging information and statistics into a single coherent source. The majority of statistics and data included are National Statistics or Official Statistics sourced from producers such as the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC), the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA) and the Office for National Statistics (ONS) among others.

The publication is structured around 6 chapters including: 1) key socio-demographic statistics for Northern Ireland to provide a broad context; 2) the economic contribution of energy to the local economy; 3) electricity generation, transmission, distribution and supply; 4) renewable electricity generation; 5) total energy consumption; and 6) energy and the consumer.
