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.
The value "-9999" corresponds to "No Data"
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).
Waste refers to the quantities of fuels extracted or produced from Industrial waste and Municipal waste.
Industrial waste consists of solid and liquid products (e.g. tyres) combusted directly, usually in specialised plants, to produce heat and/or power and that are not reported in the category solid biomass.
Municipal waste consists of products that are combusted directly to produce heat and/or power and comprises wastes produced by the residential, commercial and public services sectors that are collected by local authorities for disposal in a central location. Hospital waste is included in this category.
A KTOE is defined as 41.868 TJ (Terajoules) or 11.630 GWh (Gigawatt-Hour).
