Abstract

Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) datasets published by the Energy Statistics Division (ESD) contain annual and quarterly time series data from 1960 onwards on energy production, trade, stocks, transformation, consumption, prices and taxes as well as on greenhouse gas emissions for over the 30 OECD Member countries and over 100 non-OECD countries world-wide.

In OECD Member countries the data are collected by official bodies (most often the national statistics office in each country) from firms, government agencies and industry organisations and are then reported to the IEA using questionnaires to ensure international comparability. In non-OECD countries the data are collected directly from government and industry contacts and from national publications.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Emissions from Fuel Combustion database provides a comparative analysis of CO2 emissions from fossil fuel combustion, a major source of anthropogenic emissions. The data are designed to assist in understanding the evolution of these emissions on a country, regional and worldwide basis. Data are included for 30 Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries and for more than 100 non-OECD countries and regions. In general, OECD data are available from 1960 and non-OECD data from 1971 onwards. Emissions have been calculated using the IEA energy databases (see also SNs 5182-5189) and the default methods and emissions factors from the Revised 1996 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories.

These data were first provided by the UK Data Service in June 2005 and are updated annually. The UK Data Service web site includes further information on its IEA CO2 Emissions from Fuel Combustion holdings, including a dataset user guide and details of latest database updates.
