About the product
This publication is the fifty-second issue in a series of annual compilations of internationally comparable statistics summarizing world energy trends. Annual data for over 200 countries and areas for the period of 2005 to 2008 are presented on production, trade and consumption of energy, i.e. solid, liquid and gaseous fuels, as well as electricity. In addition, per capita consumption series are provided for all energy products. Graphs are included to illustrate historic trends and/or changes in composition of production and/or consumption of major energy products. Special tables of interest include international trade tables for coal, crude petroleum and natural gas by partner countries (providing information on direction of trade), selected series of statistics on renewables and wastes, refinery distillation capacity and a table on selected energy resources.
