In an effort to provide users with more timely information, the February 2020 edition of the IEA’s “World Energy Balances and CO2 Emissions from Fuel Combustion Database” provides information for OECD and other economies for which data up to 2018 have been already received and validated.
The February 2020 database cover 28 countries. Further 2020 editions are expected to include a progressively broader coverage: the April 2020 editions will cover the full set of OECD plus other selected emerging economies; and, the August (World Energy Balances) and September (CO2 emissions from fuel combustion) editions will cover the global set of data.
Full energy balances and emissions data show for example that while a few countries, mainly in Europe, flattened their emissions for road transport over the last five years, the majority of economies are still showing significant increases.
The IEA’s February 2020 databases are available at the following links together with the global databases released in 2019:
- Energy balances – contains energy balances for over 150 countries and regions.
- CO2 emissions – database contains annual CO2 emissions from fuel combustion and related indicators for 190 countries plus regional aggregates.
