Electricity is an indispensable ingredient of economic development, and this goes for all countries. Its relative importance increases in relation to technical progress, industrialization and the need for modern comforts. Increase in its production translates into better quality of life and the creation of wealth. A good indicator for measuring the differences in development between the various regions in the world is obtained by comparing per capita electricity output. North American has, as always, the highest per capita electricity production figure (14167kWh/cap). That is more than double Western Europe (4411 kWh/cap) and almost thirty times that of Sub-Saharan Africa (490kWh/cap).
