G.2. Total primary energy supply

Indicator:

G2 – Total primary energy supply

download the file in Excel format for 1990–2017

Brief description:

The indicator describes the operations with energy in the country (primary production (+), imports (+), exports (-), international aviation bunkers (-), stock changes (+, -).

Total primary energy supply in the country, by fuel and energy (coal, crude oil, oil products, natural gas, nuclear energy, hydro, wind, solar and geothermal energy, biofuels and waste, electricity, heat).



Total primary energy supply
(Kilotons of oil equivalent)




Methodology:

Final energy consumption is formed in the result of construction of energy balance in format and using methodology of International Energy Agency (IEA) in accordance with Energy Statistics Manual (OECD/IEA/Eurostat, 2007);

Energy Statistics Manual (OECD/IEA/Eurostat, 2007);

Database documentation provides support information for the IEA World Energy Balances database;

Primary production includes the production (extraction) of energy from natural energy source of the country (from peat, crude oil, oil products, natural gas, nuclear energy, hydropower, geothermal and solar energy, biofuels and waste, electricity, and heat). Production of biofuels and waste equates to their consumption as fuel in all sectors of consumption. The production of hydro-, wind- and solar energy is reflected by the electricity generated.

Stock changesreflects the arithmetic difference between opening stock levels at the first day of the year and closing levels on the last day of the year of stocks held by consumers and suppliers of fuel and energy resources. The values for changes of stocks can be positive or negative according to the yearly balance.

Total primary energy supplyshows the total supply of primary energy to the domestic market and is defined as production of primary energy + imports - exports - international aviation bunkers + (-) stock changes.

IEA Energy Balances of the Republic of Belarus

Relevance of the indicator:

The indicator describes the development of the energy sector and the corresponding levels of energy supply. Improving the efficiency of energy consumption (or reducing energy intensity) reduces negative environmental impacts.
