Second Meeting of the United Nations Expert Group
on Energy Statistics

2-5 November 2010, New York

The United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) organized the second Meeting of the Expert Group on Energy Statistics from 2 to 5 November 2010 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. 

The main purpose of the meeting was to review and endorse the provisional draft of the International Recommendations for Energy Statistics (IRES) prior to its submission to the United Nations Statistical Commission for adoption at its 42nd Session (22-25 February 2011).  The Expert Group reviewed the results of the worldwide consultation on the provisional draft of IRES that took place during the period from July to August 2010 and advised on their incorporation in the final draft.

The Expert Group also discussed a number of issues relevant to the preparation of the Energy Statistics Compilers Manual (ESCM) and to the development of the implementation programme of the revised recommendations.  Experts from countries and international/regional organizations active in energy statistics participated in the meeting.

The provisional draft of IRES has been developed in accordance with the decisions of the United Nations Statistical Commission at its 36th and 37th sessions.  It has been prepared in cooperation with the Oslo Group on Energy Statistics and the Intersecretariat Working Group on Energy Statistics (InterEnerStat).  More information on the revision process is available at: http://unstats.un.org/unsd/energy/ires/prepprocess.htm
