Per Capita Energy and Wealth Levels

• https://www.nextbigfuture.com, by Brian Wang

The UK has about per capita electricity generation for a developed nation at about 4500-kilowatt hours per person. This electricity generation needs to be adjusted higher if the country is a major importer. A major importing nation is bringing in goods and services that require a lot of electricity to be generated from the exporting nation.

The developed countries that are not using much electricity are often :
importing heavy energy goods
have good climates that need less heating in winter
have a financial or other non-heavy industry-focused economy.

China has added electricity generation and in 2021 is at about 600 watts per person. They are close to passing Europe average. China is a net exporter of goods while Europe is a net importer.

100 watts per capita is about 860 kilowatt-hours per person. (Philippines-India level $2-5k GDP per cap, $4-8k PPPpc)
200 watts per capita is about 1750 kilowatt-hours per person. (Namibia-Mexico level $5k-10k GDP per cap, $10-20k PPPpc)
300 watts per capita is about 2600 kilowatt-hours per person. (Thailand $6k-10k GDP per cap, $20k PPPpc)
500 watts per capita is about 4400 kilowatt-hours per person. (Portugal level GDP per capita, $25000 nom GDPpc, $35k PPPpc)
800 watts per capita is about 7000 kilowatt-hours per person. (Japan level GDP per capita, $40000 nom GDPpc, $40k PPPpc)

Indonesia should be at 140 watts per capita as they have been building power generation. Indonesia should be at 1000-1300 TWH.
