World Energy Usage: Statistics?

I am curious about world energy usage statistics. Does anyone know of any resources where I can find a list of countries along with a breakdown of each country's energy sources. I would like to find out what percentage is oil power, coal power, nuclear power, wind power, solar power, etc.

I cannot find a resource like that myself and am also looking for any ideas about how we could start one. I realize it would have to be a group project involving a lot of research and dynamic programming abilities.

Any ideas are appreciated!

The CIA World Factbook knows all. Contains basic information about the world and all countries of the world. Keep in mind that it is just basic statistics and be sure to read the years that the data was gathered, but is a great starting point. CIA Fact Book Country listings
Good luck.

This will tell you how nerdy I am: when I'm bored, I actually fool around on that site for fun. I also like the "flags of the world" section. You find out cool things like what the flag of the Isle of Man looks like (look it up, you will laugh).

But my favorite real country flag of all time is Libya.



It's like they were too lazy to make up a design.
