Household electricity consumption increased in 2007 and amounted to 3,000 GWh. The share of households equipped with electricity-consuming appliances is also increasing. Among these are, for instance, dishwashers, clothes dryers, mobile phone, CD players, microwaves, and personal computers. Despite the improved energy efficiency of some appliances, electricity consumption has not decreased, as the number of household appliances continues to increase rapidly, which also contributes to excessive quantities of waste.
The indicator shows the trends of household electricity consumption and the changes in household equipment with regard to electricity-consuming appliances.
