Ask a Question

Synopsis
  • This interactive map, chart, and table shows the average annual electricity consumption per capita starting from 1985. 
  • It provides a graphical representation of the individual energy use in each country and can help provide a projection towards the future.
Teaching Tips

Positives

  • Data can be viewed as a map, table or chart. Pressing the play button shows how the data changes from 1985-2020.

Additional Prerequisites

  • Educator would need time to get familiar with this interactive media and decide on how to implement it with the learners.

Differentiation

  • There are other related interactive maps for measuring similar parameters.
  • Can be used to create awareness about one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Scientist Notes

A combination of Ember with BP datasets is accurate given the period of estimation of electricity consumption per capita. The resource is suitable for teaching.
