End-use sectors: energy use vs greenhouse gas emissions

  • Click on the 'Play' button (bottom left corner) to launch the interactive visualization.
  • Drag and drop provinces' labels if they overlap the curves.

We choosed to represent six end-use sectors for energy:

  1. Non energy: energy commodities (refined pretroleum products, natural gas etc) embedded in material such as paints, varnishes, plastics, etc.
  2. Personal Transport: includes personal vehicles, public transit, airplanes, etc.
  3. Residential: includes lighting, heating, cooking, plugloads, etc. for where people live 
  4. Freight Transport: the movement of goods including by truck, train, ship, pipelines, etc. 
  5. Commercial and Institutional: includes lighting, heating and cooling in all commercial and institutional buildings (warehouses, stores, office buildings, universities, schools etc) 
  6. Industrial: the industry sectors that use (not produce) energy for manufacturing, mining, steel, cement, chemical industries, etc. In our energy Sankeys, the energy producing industry sectors are considered ‘service’ industries in the centre of the diagram that provide energy commodities such as refined petroleum production, pipelined natural gas, electricity etc. for the end use sectors.

Compare energy use vs greenhouse gas emissions by end-use sector in Canada and in each of its provinces, from 1978 to 2013.
