More on energy use and climate zones

Colder climates require more energy for heat and somewhat more for lighting and cooking. Hot and humid climates, on the other hand, require more energy for cooling and refrigeration. It may not be immediately obvious which climate zones require more energy. Statistically, however, there is a strong correlation: the coldest areas require the most energy. The choices above are ordered from most to least energy intensive.
