This report describes the outcome of the exploration on the possible disaggregation of the statistics on final energy consumption in the industry sector in the Netherlands, 2016 and 2017.
The application of European Energy Statistics Regulation (ESR) requires a detailed breakdown of the existing aggregates and statistics in order to better follow energy consumption trends with a higher degree of accuracy. The need to satisfy the ESR requirements was enhanced by the increasing demand for more detailed information about energy efficiency, Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions linked to energy consumption and production, renewable energy, the cost of energy, energy dependence, and economic competitiveness.
The proposed disaggregation in this research is based on a multiple layer approach, which was developed by the Task Force “Further disaggregation of the statistics on final energy consumption in the industrial sector” of the Eurostat Working Group on energy statistics.
1. Layer 1: NACE-based disaggregation on a 2-digit level.
2. Layer 2: Product based disaggregation for at least NACE 17, 20, 23 and 24
3. Layer 3: Energy-end use based disaggregation and disaggregation high temperature vs. low temperature heat production.
This research is the result of the grant for the disaggregation of the statistics on final energy consumption (FEC) in the industry sector in the Netherlands provided by Eurostat.
