Country Practice Examples

As part of the preparation of the Energy Statistics Compilers Manual (ESCM), a country practice template was developed by the Oslo Group in cooperation with UNSD. The use of a common format facilitated the review and comparisons of country practices and has fed into the ESCM. As the ESCM is foreseen to be periodically reviewed and updated, national institutions responsible for energy statistics are encouraged to keep using this template to share their practices in the collection, compilation and dissemination of energy statistics. This way, future revisions of the ESCM will reflect new methodological developments and keep data compilers abreast of new country practices.

The Country Practice Template is available here. It provides a common format for countries to report and share their practices in the collection, compilation and dissemination of energy statistics. The filled template can be submitted to UNSD at .
