Energy statistics training in Mexico City
29 November 2017
As part on the continued support the IEA is offering to Mexico, the IEA statistics team ran an energy statistics training workshop in Mexico City from 21-24 November 2017. The workshop brought together 40 staff from across various government ministries and the energy sector in Mexico city and covered all aspects of energy statistics: data collection, data validation, consistency and dissemination. Participants looked at all types of energy: oil, gas, renewables, electricity and coal as well as energy efficiency and prices, and were introduced to some of the key building blocks of good energy statistics such as the UN International Recommendations for Energy Statistics and good data governance.
The training workshop was coordinated by the Ministry of Energy (SENER) and was attended by representatives of the energy regulators (CNH and CRE), major energy companies (PEMEX and CFE), system operators (CENAGAS and CENACE), the national statistical institution (INEGI) as well as other government organisations (CONUEE) and other organizations in the energy field (IMP, CNSNS, INEEL, ININ).
This broad level of participation resulted in excellent discussion on how data can be improved and better shared while also increasing the overall understanding of energy data processes and needs, also leading to deeper engagement across the organisations in attendance.
