Asia's craving for energy slowed down in 2011, with primary energy production increasing by 3.7% in 2011 from 7.1% in 2010 and primary energy consumption growing by 5.1% (6.4% in 2010). China kept running ahead (highest energy consumption in 2011, 19% above the United States), while India consolidated its position of world's third largest consumer and succeeded in lowering its energy consumption per unit of GDP to the world average. Japan was deeply impacted by the March 2011 events (-36% in primary energy production and -6.6% in primary energy consumption).
