Energy Statistics Training Workshop in Moscow


Moscow: 14 February 2012 - 17 February 2012

Organiser: IEA / Rosstat / UNFCCC

Background

Timely, reliable and high quality energy statistics form the basis for well-informed energy policy decision making. As such, the work of the Russian State Statistics Service (Rosstat) is of key importance for effective implementation of energy policies and regulations and in particular the recently passed Law on Energy Efficiency, an area of focus at the highest political levels in Russia since the President’s announced target to reduce Russian energy intensity of GDP by 40% by 2020 compared to 2007 levels. As Russia’s accession process to the OECD continues, Russian statistical reporting obligations will only increase. This workshop was a way to support Russia and Rosstat in its efforts to do so.

In the framework of the IEA-Russian Energy Ministry Joint Statement, agreed at the IEA Ministerial in October 2011, and in line with the IEA-Rosstat MOU and Action Plan for 2012, the IEA and Rosstat held a 4-day joint Energy Statistics Training Workshop, with the support of the IEA’s Training and Capacity Building Center (TCB).

Over 60 participants took part over the 4-day period including from Rosstat, the Ministry of Economic Development, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Energy, the Russian Energy Agency, APBE, CENEf, RosHydromet, Petromarkets, GazpromExport, BP Russia, the Institute of Prognosis, the Institute of Global Climate and Ecology and the Energy Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Science. The main goals of the training workshop were to:

  • Work together to improve the quality of energy statistics in Russia
  • Bring together consumers and producers of energy data in Russia, as well as sector specific experts (oil, gas, coal, electricity, energy efficiency, energy balances) to engage in a discussion on how best to coordinate to ensure the completeness, timeliness and quality of the data.
  • Understand better the Russian energy statistics data collection process and clarify gaps or inconsistencies vis-à-vis international standards in the data received from Rosstat
  • Enhance co-operation and expert level contact to make it easier for day to day contact through email and telephone on an as needed basis when questions arise.
