The annual bilingual publication ‘Energy Balance Sheets 2008’ contains the data for 2003 - 2008 on energy statistics obtained from the current surveys of the National Statistical Institute.
The publication presents also detailed information on:
• Commodity energy balances - coal and coal products, crude oil and oil products, natural gas, renewables, electricity and heat
• Overall energy balance
• Primary energy production
• Gross inland energy consumption
• Transformation input/output
• Final energy consumption.
• Product definition
• Energy balance indicators
• Specific Conversion Factors.
The overall energy balance sheets for 2007 and 2008 are presented in three matrixes:
• primary energy matrix;
• converted energy matrix;
• final energy consumption matrix,
corresponding with Eurostat methodology.
Transformation input in power and heat plants is included.
Tables with international comparisons for main energy indicators are included in publication. Data for these tables are taken from the publication of International Energy Agency - ‘Energy Statistics and Balances of Non-OECD Countries’ and ‘Energy Statistics and Balances of OECD Countries’, editions 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009.
Data are presented in volume measures - tons, cubic meters, kWh etc. The common energy unit used for the Aggregated energy balance is ‘ton of oil equivalent’.
The following dependence exists between units:
1 GJoule = 0,239 Gcal = 278 kWh = 0,02389 toe
The publication is available on CD-ROM and is also published on the NSI website.
