Target Group

Environmental statisticians or staff working on environmental accounts departments and involved in data compilation of Physical Energy Flow Accounts (PEFA). Introductory and advanced level.

Entry Qualifications

  • Sound command of English. Participants should be able to make short interventions and to actively participate in discussions
  • Basic knowledge on energy statistics, national accounts, environmental economic accounting on national level

Objective(s)

The course will provide participants with theoretical and practical training on the compilation of Physical Energy Flow Accounts. Focus is given to the use of Eurostat's IT tool ("PEFA-Builder") supposed to facilitate the compilation of Physical Energy Flow Accounts based on Annual Questionnaires for energy statistics.

Contents

  • Conceptual foundations of Physical Energy Flow Accounts (PEFA) and relation to System of Environmental-Economic Accounts (SEEA)
  • Introduction to and overview of the set of PEFA tables:
    • Table A – Physical supply table for energy flows
    • Table B – Physical use table for energy flows
    • Table C – Table of emission-relevant use of energy flows
    • Table D – Derived indicators
    • Table E – Bridge table
  • Introduction to IEA/Eurostat Annual Questionnaires for Energy Statistics.
  • Introduction to compilation tool ("PEFA-Builder")
    • Brief overview (flow chart)
    • Brief overview on the various modules of the "PEFA-Builder"
  • Detailed guidance on how to use the "PEFA-Builder" with focus on data inputs (possible national data sources required to provide auxiliary information beyond the IEA/Eurostat Annual Questionnaires for Energy Statistics)
  • Discussion of problems in compiling Energy Accounts

Expected Outcome

Experts should be able to compile PEFA tables with the help of the IT tool ("PEFA-Builder).

Training Methods

Combination of theoretical lessons, practical training with the computer, and discussion of practical problems.
