Concepts and definitions

Concept of energy balances. The energy balance is an accounting framework for compilation and reconciliation of data on all energy products entering, exiting and used within a country or area during a reference period (in this publication, a year). Such a balance must necessarily express all forms of energy in a common accounting unit, and show the relationship between the inputs to and the outputs from the energy transformation processes. Energy balances should be as complete as possible so that all energy flows are, in principle, accounted for.
