Comp D: Energy Statistics Action Plans


The main aim of the ITS project and Component D is to assist the Partner Countries (PCs) in developing their institutional frameworks for energy statistics, in order to harmonise them with international standards, and to improve the methodologies applied in data collection and compilation of energy statistics, energy balances, energy prices and energy (efficiency) indicators.

One of the first activities carried out by the ITS project was the development of Energy Statistics Action Plans (ESAPs) and their adoption by the Partner Countries (PCs). ESAPs have been used as a guideline for implementing certain activities under the project, as well as for monitoring their success.

The Energy Statistics Action Plans consist of the following main segments:

  • evaluation of the current status of energy statistics and energy balances and creation of the Energy Statistics Country Profile;
  • assessment of the required measures and activities needed to streamline the efforts towards the alignment of energy statistics with the rules and procedures applicable in the relevant international organisations (IEA) and in the EU (EUROSTAT);
  • selection of the specific measures and activities to be supported by the ITS project through the technical assistance aimed to increase transfer of know-how and skills and the creation and strengthening of the institutions involved in energy statistics system organisation.

 The Energy Statistics Action Plans refer mostly to the ITS project period, but the ITS experts have also included suggestions for the extension period (February 2015 to April 2016).

 The Energy Statistics Action Plans require an active participation of the PCs’ relevant institutions in implementing the activities proposed by the ITS project, as well as in monitoring the success of the project.
