Darstellung des deutschen Energiestatistiksystems

When people think about the energy transition, few would think about energy statistical systems. However, in their relevance they are far from being niche topics. After all, appraising the status quo or progress on targets, making forecasts, planning a low-carbon energy system and designing policies all rely on a broad and reliable basis of data on the energy system. Hence, a sophisticated energy statistics system is a crucial enabler of the energy transition. In order to promote the exchange of energy statistics between China and Germany, the Sino-German Climate Partnership commissioned Dr. Hans-Joachim Ziesing, former head of the German “Working Group on Energy Balances” and a renowned German expert on energy statistics, to summarize the German energy statistics system. The focus of the report and the workshop was on introducing the German energy statistics system in a comprehensive way, including the process of compiling and harmonizing data, methodological questions, involved actors, and the sequence of steps from collecting data up to the publication of the official statistics. The paper also described how the “Working Group on Energy Balances” functions, which is a central actor in coordinating other actors and compiling the official statistics. The report is only available in Chinese and German
