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, the Energy Balances, the Electricity Profiles, and the Energy Statistics Pocketbook publications.

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 (2017 and 2018). Countries are encouraged to enter 2018 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 the Energy Statistics Yearbook, the Energy Balances, the Electricity Profiles, and the Energy Statistics Pocketbook. The unofficial Arabic translation has been provided by the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia.
