The Energy Statistics Yearbook 2004 supplies detailed and aggregated information on production, trade and consumption of different fuel types, which could support a wide spectrum of users from within the energy sector as well as policy makers and academia.

The publication, 48th in a series of annual publications, provides internationally comparable series of commercial energy statistics summarizing world level and regional energy trends. Annual data for 215 countries and areas for the period 2001 to 2004 are presented on production, trade and consumption of energy: solids, liquids, gaseous, traditional fuels and electricity in a series of
38 comprehensive tables
In addition, per capita consumption series are also provided for all energy products.
introduce major products showing historic trends and/or changes in composition of production and/or consumption of major products. Special tables of interest include international trade tables for coal, crude petroleum and natural gas by partner countries. It also provides statistics on fuelwood, charcoal and bagasse, installed capacities- refinery distillation and electricity-, as well as selected energy resources and reserves.

The 2004 Energy Statistics Yearbook includes the following tables:
