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) Energy Technology Research and Development (R and D) Database contains annual time series from 1974 onwards and is divided into two parts:

Government Energy Technology R and D Budgets
Budgets are available for several R and D activities: conservation, fossil fuels, renewable energy, nuclear fission, nuclear fusion as well as power and storage technologies. Data for 23 IEA member countries are available, but no data are provided for Luxembourg which has no energy R and D programmes. Moreover, data for certain countries are not available for all years. Data for the European Commission are currently being revised and have not been included in the database.

Economic Indicators (used for deflating and currency conversion)
Three series are available: Nominal GDP in national currency, US Dollar exchange rate and GDP deflator.

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 Energy Technology R and D holdings, including a dataset user guide and details of latest database updates.
