Academic Writing - Model Answer (Task 1)

The bar chart show how much energy was consumed in the UK and the USA over a six year period, using five types of energy sources.

35% of energy consumption in the USA in 2000 came from oil and coal whilst the UK consumed 5% less. The UK used around 5% more gas, nuclear power and other renewable resources than the USA at 20%, 15% and 10% respectively.

Six years later the USA consumed 40% oil and the UK 10% less. Coal consumption dropped and reached 25% in the USA and 15% in the UK. Gas usage increased for both countries and reached 38% for the UK and 25% for the USA. The consumption of nuclear power and other renewable sources was less than 10%.

In 2000, oil and coal were consumed the most (by both countries) while coal consumption fell six years later giving rise to gas usage (mostly used in the UK).  The usage of other renewable resources remained relatively stable and nuclear power was used less.
