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.

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.
The data is only aggregated if at least 75 % of the observations are available (i.e. % of population or % of area or % of countries) on an annual basis.
Data for Africa, Latin America and Asia,on regional and global level, inculdes the values: "Other Africa, other Latin America, repectively other Asia" given by the provider.
Data with zero ("0") values are according the provider considered as no supply.
No data ("-9999") are according the provider considered as absence of supply values.
The data is recalculated from Terajoules based on net calorific values used in the Energy Balances of OECD Countries (1960-1999) and Non-OECD Countries (1971-1999).

Production refers to the quantities of fuels extracted or produced, calculated after any operation
for removal of inert matter or impurities (e.g. sulphur from natural gas).
Combustible Renewables refers to the quantities of fuels extracted or produced from Primary
Solid Biomass and Biogas.
Primary Solid Biomass is defined as any plant matter used directly as fuel or converted into
other forms before combustion. Included are wood, vegetal waste (including wood waste and
crops used for energy production), animal materials/wastes, sulphite lyes, also known as "black
liquor" (an alkaline spent liquor from the digesters in the production of sulphate or soda pulp
during the manufacture of paper where the energy content derives from the lignin removed from
the wood pulp) and other solid biomass.
This category contains only primary solid biomass. This includes inputs to charcoal production but
not the actual production of charcoal (this would be double counting since charcoal is a
secondary product).Biogas is derived principally from the anaerobic fermentation of biomass and
solid wastes and combusted to produce heat and/or power. Included in this category are landfill
gas and sludge gas (sewage gas and gas from animal slurries) and other biogas.
A KTOE is defined as 41.868 TJ (Terajoules) or 11.630 GWh (Gigawatt-Hour).
