In order to monitor progress towards the Energy Union objectives, the European Commission has built a scoreboard of key indicators per Member State and at EU level. The energy consumption statistics are currently provided 13 months following the reported year. The time difference between the actual reporting and that of the reported year can therefore run up to two years. Faster reporting is needed in order to provide an up-to-date overview of the state of the Energy Union. MS statistics on preliminary energy data must be reported to EUROSTAT at a faster rate. Furthermore, early estimates of main energy data in the MSs are needed (eight months after the end of the year).

The overarching objective of this study is to then support the European Commission in advancing the monitoring process and implementation of the Energy Union. This study aims to improve the monitoring process by:

  • Decreasing the time difference between reporting and the reported year
  • Fostering and decreasing the administrative burden of the monitoring process
  • Making the monitoring process more transparent


Enerdata is a key contributor in this project. In order to achieve the overall objectives Enerdata is then in charge of providing options to gain preliminary annual data on energy consumption within eight months after the end of the reported year and producing estimates for energy consumption data for the year 2015 at both EU and MS levels.
