Abstract

This chapter introduces the industries of the energy sector and presents the basic concepts related to energy. It also introduces the energy accounting framework that provides a consistent basis for energy-related information for statistical analysis. The chapter discusses the data-related issues and indicates how the information presented in the energy balances can be used to understand the energy situation of a country/region. The chapter will enable the reader to understand alternative forms of energies, the energy accounting framework for economic and policy analyses, and various ratios that are used to describe the energy situation of a country/region.
