Energy R&D statistics in the European research area, final report

Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


In 2003 the European Commission set up an expert group on energy R&D statistics in order to investigate the situation in Europe. Available statistics, in particular those of EUROSTAT and the International Energy Agency, were analysed with respect to their structure, level of aggregation, coverage, data collection method etc. and compared to users� needs.
The group came up with a number of concrete recommendations how to improve quality, relevance and comparability of European Energy R&D statistics, including a proposal for a revised IEA nomenclature and an updated definition of categories. This final report sums up the major findings, conclusions and recommendations for further actions.
