Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Read "process industry". Manufacturing industry uses neglible amounts of power.

We've had this argument in the Swedish debate for decades, that the Volvo factory in Ghent uses half as much power per manufactured car compared to the Volvo factory in Gothenburg. However, this doesn't make much of a difference when you have individual paper mills and smelters using almost as much power as the entire city of Gothenburg, and when these process industries sport world-class energy efficiency.  

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
