The Energy balance - EUROSTAT format

The Energy balance is the natural starting point for the construction of various indicators of energy consumption and of energy efficiency. The statistician uses the energy balance as a high-level check on the data accuracy as apparent energy gains in conversion processes or large losses indicate data problems. It is also helpful to present the supply and use data in energy units. The format adopted is termed Energy Balance and allows users to see the fuel conversion efficiencies and the relative importance of the different fuel supplies in their contribution to the economy.

The methodology for the development of energy balance, definition and grouping of energy and energy sources, and statistical terminology,  are in line with  IEA / OECD / Eurostat standards.
