Fourth Meeting of the Euro-Mediterranean Working Group on Energy statistics and Regional Workshop on Final Energy Consumption surveys in the Transport sector Paris – 26-28 September 2017

The Fourth Meeting of the Euro-Mediterranean Working Group on Energy statistics (EMWGES) will be held in Paris on the 28 September 2017. This meeting will allow ENP-S Countries to present and discuss the main evolutions in their statistical systems on energy and to assess the main progress achieved in the production and dissemination of energy statistics since the last meeting of the working group a year ago. MEDSTAT IV covers the three areas of energy balances, final energy consumption surveys and energy efficiency indicators.

The meeting will also allow to take stock of the implementation of the work programme and to confirm or adjust it for the period 2017-2018.

Finally, the Fourth Meeting of the EMWGES) will give the opportunity to discuss horizontal matters such as the design of infographics related to Energy statistics and the adoption of indicators for monitoring the implementation of the work programme in the sector.

This meeting will be preceded by a two-day regional workshop on Final Energy Consumption surveys in the Transport sector. Final energy consumption is an aspect of energy balances that is not always well covered by the statistical systems in the ENP-S countries. The transport sector is a major consumer of energy products and estimating its contribution to the final energy consumption of a country may greatly help in increasing the quality and relevance of the energy statistics.

The main objective of this workshop is to share experiences and to outline possible actions for the production of harmonized final energy consumption statistics across the region. It will largely be based on the experience of several partner countries who have already implemented a Final Energy Consumption survey in the Transport sector.

All these surveys have been implemented on the basis of noticeably different methodological approaches, reflecting national specificities in terms of transport systems and statistical methodologies. They will be presented and compared in order to draw collective lessons and to identify areas of convergence with a view to fostering harmonization and helping other ENP-S Countries define the terms of a future survey in this area. The presentation of international recommendations and the sharing of the experience of one EU Member State will also be key to the achievement of these objectives.
