Energy, Transport and Environment Indicators



Subject Keywords: Environment and energy
Set: Fuel Poverty
Type: Report
Region: Europe

The 2012 edition presents facts and figures from the Energy, Transport and Environment sectors, all in a single volume. With a view of the growing global political importance of issues such as climate change and energy security, the three sectors have become increasingly interconnected. This creates the need for a comprehensive approach, comprising reliable and comparable statistical data, necessary for the better understanding of the complexity of the issues, for sound policy-making and the setting of effective measures.

The indicators present national data for the 27 EU Member States, the EFTA and candidate countries. When available, the EU-27 aggregate is also provided. Data are generally available for the period between 2000 and 2010; transport mainly between 2005 and 2010. In the energy chapter, the main data sources are: reporting under Regulation (EC) No 1099/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council on Energy Statistics and Directive 2008/92/EC concerning transparency of gas and electricity prices. In the transport chapter, the most important data sources are: reporting under the EU legal acts on transport statistics and the Eurostat/UNECE/ITF Common Questionnaire.

Regarding environment, data on waste derive from reporting under Regulation 2150/2002 on waste statistics and data on water are collected in cooperation with the OECD by means of a Joint Questionnaire. Environmental accounts are collected by Eurostat and emissions data are taken from the European Environment Agency. The report ‘State of Europe’s Forests 2011’ is the source of data on forest area and wood harvest by ownership whereas imports of wood and wood products come from Eurostat. Data on bird indicators are provided by the European Bird Census Council/The Royal Society for Protection of Birds/ BirdLife International/ Statistics Netherlands.
