Energy balance record
An energy balance record is a survey of the sourcing,
transformation and use of all forms of energy within a specified economic
area (borough, company, country, state) during a defined period (e.
g. month, year).
Energy balance records show the quantitative flow of
the energy from different sources, starting from its origin and continuing
with its transformation and consumption by the user, in the form of
a balance sheet. They are a major basis for decisions on energy policy
and the energy industry as well a for predictions on the development
of the energy demand. The energy balance sheets provide relevant information
the extent and structure of energy consumption,
changes in energy consumption,
the contributions of the different domestic and imported energy
the transformation of energy carriers and
the distribution of the energy consumed over the different consumption
For Germany, energy balance records are compiled e.
g. by "Arbeitsgemeinschaft Energiebilanzen", an organisation supported by energy
industry associations and economic research institutes.
