Energy Plots

The animated bubble charts below are based on 1965-2019 historical energy data from the BP statistical review of world energy and population data from the World Bank. They were made using the program DataGraph.

In all plots, horizontal and vertical axes are in logarithmic scale, and axes may not encompass the same range (be careful when reading the axes values). Each bubble is a country, with size representing the country’s population, and colour indicating seven world regions:

1. Red = Africa
2. Yellow = Asia Pacific
3. Purple = CIS countries
4. Blue = Europe
5. Orange = Middle East
6. Light Green = North America
7. Dark Green = South and Central America

Countries are also labelled using their
geo-codes. More details about the plots can be found in this document.

Feel free to use the movies for teaching, research and public presentations.
