Training Courses on Energy Data

Energee-Watch

IEA – International Enegy Agency

The tenth IEA Energy Statistics Course opened on 12 October 2015, drawing 28 statisticians from 25 countries worldwide for a week of intense training in IEA tools and methods to develop and maintain complete and accurate national energy datasets. The October Energy Statistics Course is one of two held each year in Paris for free.

IEA Executive Director welcomed the 28 statisticians, noting the crucial role data plays in effective improvement of energy security and sustainability for the entire world. During the course, various members of the IEA Energy Data Centre described the tools and methodology that the IEA and – thanks in part to past Energy Statistics Courses – ever more statisticians around the world use to measure, compile, compare and disseminate data. Individual lessons addressed all major fuels, as well as energy efficiency indicators, national energy balances, prices, taxes, carbon emissions and more. Practical exercises reinforced the lectures, plus some of the attendees gave presentations on their countries’ specific data issues and solutions.
