efficiency indicators (EEI) play an important role in analysing the
interactions among economic and human activity, energy use and CO2
They are essential for the
setting of energy policy in all countries. EEIs are designed to help government
decision makers and analysts monitor trends and allow for a better understanding
of the impact that policy measures have had in each sector.
Statistics component of the INOGATE Technical Secretariat (ITS) will organise a
Regional Seminar on the calculation of EEIs in Minsk, Belarus on 22-24
Specifically, the objectives
of this INOGATE regional workshop will be to discuss the best international
practices in using EEIs for the monitoring and evaluation of energy efficiency
policies; to increase awareness of the importance of data quality, to take
stock of the status quo and priorities in each Partner Country (PC) and to share
examples of EEI systems at the international level, as well as showcasing the
progress achieved in Belarus and Azerbaijan. These presentations will be made
As an integral part
of the workshop, participants will be trained in the use of a simple
calculation tool (through a template developed by the International Energy Agency
(IEA) by means of practical exercises. They will each develop and demonstrate their
own user-friendly tool specially developed for modelling household energy data
and the calculation of end-use energy consumption.
ITS and IEA
experts will also introduce the key concepts and objectives underlying the
development of EEIs including data requirements, calculation methodologies
(e.g. data collection, modelling, compilation and calculation of EEIs according
to the recommendations prepared by Eurostat/European Commission) and
international best practices (e.g. Eurostat, IEA).
This workshop will assist
representatives of the five INOGATE PCs (Azerbaijan, Belarus,
Kazakhstan, Moldova and Ukraine) in calculating EEIs for their country in three
main areas or sectors: economy-wide indicators, residential and industry
indicators. ITS experts are recommending the adoption of a gradual approach to
the calculation of EEIs. At this stage EEIs in the transportation, agriculture
and services sectors will not be covered in depth, although the workshop will
also prepare and present ITS recommendations for the development of EEIs in the
transport and services sectors.
workshop, representatives from INOGATE PCs will be asked to work together to
prepare the available data and carry out exercises on the calculation of EEIs.
ITS and IEA experts will provide the necessary guidance for participants during
the practical sessions.
