Description

The statistics on energy accounts examine the supply and use of energy in the national economy and between the economy and the environment. In the energy accounts, the supply and use of energy are presented in accordance with the supply and use tables of the national accounts. Examination of energy production and use by industry is one of the sub-areas of environmental accounts in the EU. The ultimate goal of environmental accounts is to describe the interaction between the environment and the economy by principally using the basic concepts and classifications of national accounts. The European Union's regulation concerning environmental accounts (No 538/2014) obliges the Member States to compile statistics and report annually on energy accounts; for the first time in 2017 regarding the statistical reference years 2014 and 2015. The statistics form part of the United Nations' System of Environmental-Economic Accounts (SEEA).
