22 Nov 2018
The energy consumed in housing amounted to good 66 terawatt hours (TWh) in 2017. Consumption fell slightly from the previous year, although the number and volume of dwellings grew by around one per cent. The weather was warmer in 2017 than in the previous year, which decreased the need for heating energy. Consumption of indoor space heating fell by one percent from 2016 to 2017. The energy consumption of household appliances went down by three per cent. The data are based on Statistics Finland's statistics on energy consumption in households.

Consumption of heating energy in spaces is presented in the statistics according to type of building and energy source. Energy consumption of household appliances is divided into consumption of home electrical equipment, lighting and cooking.
