MEDSTAT IV organises a Regional workshop that will take place in Brussels, on 26-28 June 2018
Transformation processes are at the heart of energy systems as they constitute the link between primary energy sources and final energy consumption. The statistical treatment of these processes is a complex issue as there are numerous primary energy products and processes which require to be dealt with specifically.
This workshop should allow to present international and European concepts and methodologies for imputing transformation processes in the compilation of the Energy balances, in relation in particular with the production of refineries, coal-fired and oil-fired power stations, but also in relation with specific energy products, such as biomass and other renewable energy products.
The workshop should also lay out the foundation for the preparation of a regional publication on the energy balances produced by the MED partner countries. The publication should present the energy balances for each country accompanied by a short comment on the methodologies used for the production of these balances and by a short analytical comment on the data. The analytical comment could specifically address the share of energy products in primary energy supply, the characteristics of the transformation processes, or the breakdown of the final energy consumption by energy product and sector.
Experts from the ENP-S countries statistical institutes, ministries of energy, specialized agencies and national companies have been invited to the workshop in order to debate on these issues and to enhance the quality and the visibility of energy balances in the Mediterranean region.
