This report compiles the energy statistics of the Asian and Pacific member economies of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) from 1990 to 2009. Energy data for 47 member economies in the region are presented as energy balance tables and historical summary tables.
This report updates ADB's first attempt to consolidate available energy balances and other energy and energy-related data for Asia and the Pacific, Energy Statistics in Asia and the Pacific, 1990-2006 . Data coverage has been expanded up to 2009, which is the most recent year for which energy data are available.
The years 2007 to 2009 were significant for Asia and the Pacific in terms of energy security and sustainable development, with the region witnessing increases in investments in clean energy development, including renewable energy, energy efficiency, and access to modern forms of energy.
The energy balance tables use an accounting framework that traces the flow of energy from source to final consumption expressed in a common energy accounting unit (in this case, thousand tons of oil equivalent), reflecting the equivalence, and sometimes the substitutability, of different energy types.
The historical summary tables present some information from the energy balance tables, as well as macroeconomic indicators, electric power generation data, and basic energy indicators.
