Key World Energy Statistics 2008
Organization for Economic Cooperation & Devel / Inernational Energy Agency
OECD/IEA | 2008 | ISBN: n/a | 82 pages | PDF | 5 Mb
In 1997 the IEA produced a handy, pocket-sized summary of key energy data. This new edition responds to the enormously positive reaction to the books since then. Key World Energy Statistics from the IEA contains timely, clearly-presented data on the supply, transformation and consumption of all major energy sources. The interested businessman, journalist or student will have at his or her fingertips the annual production of coal, the electricity consumption, the price of diesel oil and thousands of other useful energy facts all over the world.
The IEA, which was established in November 1974, has over the years gained recognition as one of the world’s most authoritative sources for energy statistics. Its all-encompassing annual studies of oil, natural gas, coal, electricity and renewables are indispensable tools for energy policy makers,
companies involved in the energy field and scholars.
Gathering and analysing statistics is one of the important IEA functions. But the Agency – an autonomous body within the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development – also:
administers a plan to guard member countries against the risk of a major disruption of oil supplies;
coordinates national efforts to conserve energy and develop alternative energy sources, as well as to limit pollution and energy-related climate change;
disseminates information on the world energy market and seeks to promote stable international trade in energy.
