Data on production, imports, exports and consumption of renewable energy resources, charcoal and waste are used to estimate production and consumption of various renewable energy resources in all sectors of national economy (by main kind of economic activity).

Definitions

The quantity of energy resources consumed by energy sector to further the extraction and to ensure the operation of transformation sector (NACE Rev. 2 headings 05, 06, 07.21, 08.92, 09.1, 19.20, 35).

Quantity of energy resources transported across the state border to the third countries and to the EU Member states (without commodity flows to customs warehouses and free economic zones), not including transit.

Consumption by industry, transport, households, agriculture, forestry, hunting, fishery, and other consumers (NACE Rev. 2 divisions 33, 36–39, 45–47, 52–96, 99).

Gross consumption of charcoal is negative (Production + Imports – Exports + Stock changes + Statistical difference) because charcoal is produced from firewood, therefore production is shown in charcoal production item in the Transformation sector.

In this case charcoal balance is calculated as follows: Volume of charcoal produced in transformation sector + Imports – Exports + Stock changes + Statistical difference = Final consumption.

Quantity of energy resources transported across the state border from the third countries and from the European Union (EU) Member States (without commodity flows from customs warehouses and free economic zones), not including transit.

Sphere of activity of the enterprise or individual that expresses itself in the produced goods or services.

The type is determined by Standard Classification of Economic Activities (NACE Rev. 1.1, starting from 2008 – NACE Rev. 2). 

In 2008 the data were published according to both NACE Rev. 1.1 and NACE Rev. 2.

1 cubic meter (m3) of timber occupying 1 x 1 x 1 m.

Losses and shortage of energy resources (oil products, natural gas etc.) emerging during transportation and supply, storing or recycling.

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

Quantity of firewood, wood waste, wood chips, wood briquettes, pelleted wood, bioethanol, biodiesel, biogas, straw and other solid waste produced.

Unit of measurement in forest taxation. 1 cubic meter (m3) of closely stowed timber occupying 1 x 1 x 1 m without air gaps.

Difference between the opening stock level (on the first day of the year) and closing stock level (on the last day of the year).

Stock build is shown as a negative number and a stock draw is shown as a positive number.

Consumption of energy resources by transformation sector, energy sector, all sectors of national economy, as well as by households.

Indicates quantity of fuel consumed for the production of electricity and quantity of fuel consumed for the production of heat, which is sold. Indicates quantity of fuelwood consumed for the production of charcoal.

Additional information

Data are collected and compiled in accordance with Eurostat methodology "Renewables Annual Questionnaire".

Data collection

Survey method and data source

Data on production, imports, exports and consumption of renewable energy resources, charcoal and waste are acquired with calculations by using several data sources:

  • CSB annual survey 1-energy "Report on production of heat and electricity";
  • CSB annual survey 2-EK "Report on purchase and use of energy resources";
  • Customs declarations on trade with third countries;
  • INTRASTAT monthly survey of enterprises engaged in trade with EU Member States.

Target population

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

Sample size

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.

Statistical processing

Calculation methods

Total consumption is calculated as follows: production + imports – exports + stock changes + statistical differences

For the wood calculations following coefficients are used:

1 m3 solid = 2.5 m3 loose;

1 m3 solid = 0.7 tonne.

Data revision

Data may be adjusted.

Comparability

Comparability over time

Data on production, imports, exports and consumption of renewable energy resources, charcoal and waste 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 in the EU and in each country separately. Data are available in the section Statistics/ Environment and energy. In this section you can also find the methodological description.

Confidentiality

Confidentiality of the information provided by respondents is protected by the Section 17 of the Statistics Law stipulating rights and obligations of the Central Statistical Bureau of Latvia and other state authorities producing official statistics. Read more
