This work promotes an advanced alternative of energy flow that is more informative and comprehensive to facilitate a better understanding of the whole national or regional energy situation. The 2017 Energy Flow of Taiwan is illustrated as an example. This innovative energy flow captures the entire picture of the utilization of primary energy for a year, therein it points out each individual primary and secondary energy supply and demand, as well as further information of the flows. Especially, it is revealed in this study the comparative efficiencies of utilization of gross energy from the difference between each providing group and corresponding receiving groups. Thus, the analysis can serve as a benchmark for the government’s reference to develop or make improvements towards more efficient and better strategies of future energy use. The proposed advanced alternative of energy flow in Taiwan is suitable for promotion to analyze the energy flow in other countries or regions.
