Monthly data on production, imports, exports and consumption of electricity are compiled and calculated to estimate the volume of electricity produced in, consumed in, imported in and exported from (million kilowatt hours) Latvia.

Definitions

Amounts of electricity to be sold supplied for the domestic market, including all losses emerging during transportation and distribution and amount of electricity consumed in energy sector (NACE 35) for enterprise needs.

Electricity production in the plants, where as fuel using natural gas, solid fuels, liquid fuel, biogas and fuel wood, electricity and heat is produced in the same technological device and cycle.

Quantity of electricity transported across the state border to the third countries and to the European Union (EU) Member States, whether customs clearance has taken place or not. This category includes also data on energy transported through the country (transit).

Data on 2006 are indicated without transit.

Electricity produced in CHP, hydro-power plants, and wind turbines, including the electricity consumed by station auxiliaries and losses in the main generators transformers.

Electricity production in hydro-power plants.

Quantity of electricity amounts transported across the state border from the third countries and from the European Union (EU) Member States, regardless customs declarations has taken place or not (commercial flows).

This category includes also data on energy transported trough the country (transit).

 Till 2006 (including), data on transit were not included.

Electricity produced in the CHP plants, hydro-power plants and wind turbines excluding own consumption and losses.

Consumption of energy resources by households, agriculture, forestry, hunting, fishery and by other consumers – NACE 33, 36–39, 45–47, 52–96, 99 divisions.

Electricity production in wind turbines.

Additional information

The data are surveyed and compiled in compliance with the methodology Eurostat Electricity Monthly Questionnaire and Energy Statistics Manual of Eurostat.

Data collection

Survey method and data source

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

  • Monthly statistical report form 2-cogeneration "Report on the activities of CHP";
  • Monthly statistical report form 2-energy sector "Report on electricity production, imports and exports";
  • Customs declarations on trade with third countries;
  • INTRASTAT monthly surveys of enterprises engaged in trade with EU Member States.

Target population

For the monthly data economically active enterprises engaged in production, imports, exports of the electricity are surveyed.

Sample size

Monthly data are acquired with the help of monthly full-scope survey of enterprises submitting monthly statistical report forms 2-energy sector and 2-cogeneration, INTRASTAT sample survey, full-scope survey of customs declaration submitters.

Statistical processing

Calculation methods

Available for the internal market is calculated: net production + imports - exports.

Data revision

Information on previous periods may be revised in the monthly data.

Indicators may differ from the annual data.

Comparability

Comparability over time

Monthly data on production, imports, exports and consumption of electricity are available since 2004.

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.
