Annual Questionnaire on Energy Statistics

The Annual Questionnaire on Energy Statistics is part of the regular UNSD data collection programme. It covers statistics such as production, transformation and use of energy products.

The UNSD Annual Questionnaire on Energy Statistics is the primary source of information for the UNSD Energy Statistics Database and contributes to the Energy Statistics Yearbook and the Energy Balances and the Electricity Profiles publications. The Energy Statistics Yearbook provides comparable data on long-term trends in the supply of energy. The Energy Balances present energy data in a format showing an overall picture of energy production, trade, conversion and consumption for energy products utilized in the country, while Electricity Profiles contains detailed information on production, trade and consumption of electricity, net installed capacity and thermal power plant inputs and efficiencies.

The Annual Energy Statistics Questionnaire has been revised to reflect the recommendations ontained in the International Recommendations for Energy Statistics (IRES), which was adopted by the United Nations Statistical Commission in February 2011, and to harmonize data collection across international organizations.

Please note that, while in the past the Questionnaire typically collected new energy statistics for one year, this cycle countries are allowed to enter data for the last two years (2015 and 2016). Countries are encouraged to enter 2016 data even if provisional and subject to revision. For the past few years, the Questionnaire spreadsheet has been divided into five tabs to aid navigation. The Questionnaire will contribute to the next editions of Energy Statistics Yearbook and the Energy Balances and the Electricity Profiles. The Questionnaire is currently officially available only in English and it is being translated into Arabic, Chinese, Spanish, French and Russian. The unofficial Arabic translation has been provided by the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia. The translated Questionnaires will be posted as soon as they become available.
