The World Energy Balances online data service contains energy balances for over 150 countries and regions. The figures are expressed in thousand tonnes of oil equivalent (ktoe) and in terajoules. Conversion factors used to calculate energy balances and indicators such as GDP and population are also provided.  Definitions of products and flows, explanatory notes on the individual country data, indicators (including GDP, population, industrial production index and ratios calculated with the energy data) and net calorific values are also included. In general, the data are available from 1971 (1960 for OECD countries).

This service is updated three times a year with a progressively broader geographical coverage – in February, April and August - with the final edition with global data.
