Introduction to energy statistics and energy accounts
The Statistical Institute for Asia and the Pacific (SIAP) of the United Nations is offering the online course "Introduction to energy statistics and energy accounts" in their e-learning platform from 3 October to 18 November 2022.
Energy is essential to the economy and households. It is closely linked to food production, water use and climate change. Managing energy supply and use is a crosscutting topic that has been recognized as key to achieving the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). And as such there is a need for timely and relevant integrated information on energy to inform the needs of various stakeholders including government, private sector, academia and the public.
This course introduces concepts relevant to compiling energy statistics and accounts, including compilation of relevant SDG indicators. The topics covered include physical supply and use tables, asset accounts, valuation and data sources. Webinars will also be held as part of the course to provide an overview of the topics and allow participants to ask questions.
