The charts below show changes in the proportion of energy produced from different resources in a country in 1985 and 2003.

Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant.

Write at least 150 words.

The way in which the production of energy from different resources in a particular country changed in 2003 when compared to 1985 is depicted in the given pie charts.

Overall, it is clear that despite some fluctuations, oil remained the major source of energy in both the years.

In 1985, more than half of the country’s energy production was from oil. When 52% of the total energy produced was from oil, nuclear energy stood second contributing 22%. Just over one-fifth of the total energy came were from coal and natural gas (8 and 13% respectively). The remaining 5% was from water and other renewable resources.

Oil remained as the biggest contributor, with just under two-fifth of the total energy produced in 2003. This figure was 13% less when compared to the share in 1985. Another resource which lost its share was nuclear energy, and this was by 14%. It is interesting to note that coal and natural gas together constituted almost half of the country’s energy in 2003 (22 and 23% respectively). When the energy production from other renewable resources went up by 3% from just a per cent in 1985, the share of energy water contributed remained the same (4%).
