Energy for homes by country

Different countries get residential energy from very different sources. These differences are very much a function of whether the countries are wealthy countries (like OECD countries) or not. Wealthy countries have access to electricity and access to non-solid fuel. Lesser developed countries often use biomass for residential energy use.[1]
