Developing energy consumption data to meet users needs

PRODUCTION OF A MANUAL FOR STATISTICS ON ENERGY CONSUMPTION IN HOUSEHOLDS

MESH PROJECT

Duncan Millard

Head of Statistics, Department of Energy and Climate Change UK

ESSnet workshop, Rome, December 2012

why mesh
Why MESH?
  • Legal
  • Wider policy and local needs
  • What MESH will deliver
  • Progress to date
  • Next Steps
  • Observations on process

legal
Legal
  • Energy Statistics Regulation 1099/2008 (formalised annual and monthly reporting)
  • Requirement for the development of more data on Energy consumption and Efficiency
      • First initiative would be in household sector
  • Task force (AT, FR, DE, DK, UK)
      • Establish the needs - user requirements
      • Set up a review of national approaches – questionnaire
  • Eurostat funding supported the development of household surveys and other approaches in 2010 and 2011 (SECH)
  • Results of all prior work identified:
    • Variety of methods applicable
    • Key requirement for common definitions

Led to application to lead an ESSnet and hence MESH

wider and local needs
Wider and local needs
  • Increased focus on importance of energy efficiency and energy use at EU level
    • Renewables Directive
    • New Energy Efficiency Directive
    • Increased energy prices
    • Energy security
  • Need to better understand energy efficiency and energy use – can include
    • Monitoring national or local policies
    • Understand further potential
    • Growth/investment

But - Constraints on expanding statistical work

So - Need smart solutions

Project’s Objectives

Identifying the situation and the EU MS users’ needs in relation to the TF 2008.

A global inventory of practicesfor the statistics in the residential sector, at EU level and wider.

A manual providing greater insight into the energy use in the residential sector, the different statistical techniques applied, the good practices and methodologies used and the suggestions of options to use according to the users’ starting-off situation.

A training session for all the users in the MS to enable them to develop future detailed information requirements for the residential sector.

Dissemination of the information, the manual and the good practices found.

NSi consortium

MESH a group from ESWG - Far from all experts on the project

what mesh will deliver
What MESH will deliver?
  • Recognition that a variety of approaches are available and no one solution will meet all countries needs nor approach to gathering data
  • Will cover strengths and weaknesses of a variety of approaches
      • Household surveys
      • Business surveys
      • Admin data
      • Modelling
      • Insitu monitoring
  • Aims to promote new ideas and approaches, that countries may want to adapt
      • Key will be practical examples “good practices”
  • But will propose common definitions
  • Key element a training course in October 2013
      • Look at practical solutions with opportunity to discuss local issues with wider group and promote new ideas and co-operation

What have we done so far?

  • Update questionnaire of TF-2008 on methodologies to produce energy statistics in the residential sector to cover the requirements of the TF-2008
  • Added fuel poverty and data matching/linking to the request
      • 25 responses to date from EU states, 7 from other countries and 2 int organizations
  • Requests for good practices issued to EU states at working group on 9/11/12
  • Contract for Technical Assistance to
      • provide a summary of approach taken in MS on energy statistics in residential sector, good practices identified and standardization of methodologies.
      • report from the contractors to the group to inform work, not an output of the project
  • Working on new definitions where not agreed already by international energy manuals - options to be discussed included:
      • Methodology to develop will be valid for both main and second residence, but focus on primary
      • Private cars aren’t object to the Manual because are reported in the transport sector. But can be sensible incorporate in the survey some questions about private cars.
      • Statistics should be about energy consumption in households. It’s not possible to include energy consumption associated to business related activities
      • Rest of consumption (swimming pool, lawn mower, outdoors heaters, etc.) should be reported, but as other consumption

What have we done so far? (cont.)

  • All partners and Eurostat agreed a provisional contents of Manual

observations on essnet process to date
Observations on ESSnet process (to date)
  • Worked well
    • Project is driven by real need and has a clear deliverables
    • Co-operation and team work in project teams – a real success
    • Ideas developed and expanded through discussions
    • Support from Eurostat helpful
  • Could be improved for future EESnets
    • Projects only meet after contract agreed – funded pre-meet could assist the project
    • If deliverables are clear then process (WPs) should be flexible within set cost
    • Could final publications (pdf) be produced by Eurostat, who have more experience than partners and so allow more time on the details of the project.
    • How to keep the output/report up to date
    • Admin burden remains too high
