Energy Productivity

Energy productivity is GVA from the input of one gigawatt hour consumed.  Higher energy productivity means "squeezing" more out of every unit of energy consumed.


Energy productivity increased by 5.9 percentage points driven by an 8.4% increase in gross value added (GVA) between 2020 and 2021 and a reduction in energy consumption compared to 2019. It is now 5.0% higher than the 2015 benchmark as outlined in Scotland’s Energy Strategy (figure 3).
