Additional information

Annual data are collected and compiled in accordance with Eurostat methodology Electricity and Heat Annual Questionnaire.

Data collection

Survey method and source data

Final data on electricity production, imports, exports and consumption are acquired from several data sources:

  • Annual statistical report form 1-energy "Report on activities of public power plants";
  • Annual statistical report form 2-EK "Report on purchase and use of energy resources";
  • Annual statistical report form 1-energy "Report on production of heat and electricity" with annex;
  • Data of the Public Utilities Commission on business registers used to arrange the list of respondents submitting reports on production, management and distribution of electricity;
  • Customs declarations on trade with third countries;
  • INTRASTAT monthly survey of enterprises engaged in trade with EU Member States.

Statistical population

Includes all economically active enterprises, budgetary institutions, foundations, associations, funds engaged in the production, imports, exports, consumption and sale of energy resources.

Sample size

Annual data are acquired with the help of full-scope survey of enterprises submitting annual statistical report forms 1-energy sector and 1-energy with annex.

Whereas consumption of fuel in sectors of national economy is found out by surveying State and local government enterprises of all sectors of national economy regardless the number of employed and by surveying all other enterprises employing 80 persons or more.

Every year more than 5 thousand respondents are surveyed.

Data on enterprises and organisation employing less than 80 persons are acquired with the help of random sampling, and afterwards obtained information is extrapolated.

Data revision

Data may be adjusted.

Comparability

Comparability over time

Annual data on production, imports, exports and consumption of electricity are available since 1990.

International comparability

Eurostat

The Statistical Office of the European Union (Eurostat) compiles and on its home page publishes data on imports, production, exports and consumption of main energy resources on EU and on each country separately. Data are available in the section Statistics/ Environment and energy. In this section you can also find the methodological description.
