Primary energy is the total amount of energy used. It includes the final energy used directly by the end-user, but also the energy inputs to transformation processes such as electricity generation and oil refining and other losses such as electricity transmission and distribution. The historic data is taken from Ireland’s National Energy Balances. For more detailed commentary on the historic data see Key Statistics and SEAI’s Energy in Ireland report.
