Energy Statistics Database
The Energy Statistics Database contains basic statistics for more than 200 countries/territories. Currently, the database provides time series for the period 1950-2009 and is updated annually.
The most recent four years in the database are disseminated through the Energy Statistics Yearbook and the Energy Balances and Electricity Profiles. Data from 1990 to 2009 are available on-line through the UNdata portal. The database also contributes to various statistical publications of UNSD, such as the Statistical Yearbook.
The Energy Statistics Database provides statistics on production, trade, transformation and consumption (end-use) for solid, liquid, and gaseous fuels, electricity, and heat. The database contains data in their original units (e.g. metric tonnes, GWh) as well as calorific values to allow interfuel comparison in a common energy unit (terajoules).
The main source of information for the Energy Statistics Database is the UNSD Annual Questionnaire on Energy Statistics. Additional sources of information for the database include national, regional and international statistical publications - including, but not limited to publications from: the International Energy Agency (IEA), the Statistical Office of the European Communities (Eurostat), the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), the Organización Latinoamericana de Energía (OLADE). The Statistics Division prepares estimates where official data are incomplete or inconsistent.
