The Czech Republic's energy consumption per capita is about 24% higher than the EU average despite the decline in total energy consumption since 2006. Natural gas consumption, which has been gradually decreasing since 2001, experienced a growth in 2015 due to increased use by households and large consumers. About 2/3 of the oil is consumed by the transport sector – a sector that has experienced enormous growth in the last couple of years –, followed by use in industry.
The residential, tertiary, agriculture sector accounted for the highest share of final consumption with 38%, followed by the industrial sector with 29%, the transport sector with 23% and non-energy uses with 10%.
