General Description
Abstract:
This database contains data on the supply and consumption of coal, oil, gas, electricity, heat, combustible renewables and waste in energy balances. The figures are expressed in million tonnes of oil equivalent. Historical tables summarise key energy and economic indicators as well as production, trade, and final consumption data. This book includes definitions of products and flows. There are explanatory notes on the individual country data and conversion factors from original units to tonnes of oil equivalent. Key indicators have been provided since 1960. An analysis of energy problems requires a comprehensive presentation of basic statistics in original units such as tonnes of coal and kilowatt hours of electricity. However, the usefulness of such basic data can be considerably improved by expressing them in a common unit suitable for uses such as estimation of total energy supply, forecasting and the study of substitution and conservation. The energy balance is a presentation of the basic supply and demand data for all fuels in a manner which shows the main fuels together but separately distinguished and expressed in a common energy unit. Both of these characteristics will allow the easy comparison of the contribution each fuel makes to the economy and their interrelationships through the conversion of one fuel into another. Energy Balances of OECD Countries and Non-OECD Countries provides standardised energy balance sheets expressed in a common unit. More information: http://www.iea.org/statist/index.htm
Purpose:
This database contains energy balances for 30 OECD countries and six regions and for 100 Non-OECD countries and 11 regions. Detailed energy balances are provided in thousand tonnes of oil equivalent (ktoe). Definitions of products and flows, explanatory notes on the individual country data, indicators (including GDP, population, industrial production index and ratios calculated with the energy data) and net calorific values are also included. In general, data are available for 1960 to 1999 for OECD countries and for 1971 to 1999 for Non-OECD countries.

Definitions:
Emissions of CO2 from public electricity and heat production contain the sum of emissions from public electricity generation, public combined heat and power generation, and public heat plants. Public utilities are defined as those undertakings whose primary activity is to supply the public. They may be publicly or privately owned. Emissions from own on-site use of fuel should be included. This corresponds to IPCC Source/Sink Category 1 A 1 a.
Comments:
Data Source The estimates of CO2 emissions from fuel combustion are calculated using the IEA energy data and the default methods and emission factors from the Revised 1996 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories, IPCC/OECD/IEA Paris, 1997 (Guidelines). There are many reasons why the IEA estimates may not be the same as the numbers that a country submits to the UNFCCC, even if a country has accounted for all of its energy use and correctly applied the IPCC Guidelines. 1 Thousand Metric Tons of CO2 (1 Gigagram of CO2), is equal to 272.72... tons of C.
