Background

Since 2005, the role of the Energy Observatory was assumed by the Directorate of Observation and Programming. From 2015, following the reorganization of the Ministry of Energy, Mines and Sustainable Development, this role has been played by the Directorate of Observation, Cooperation and Communication.

Major projects carried out since 2005

  • Information System on Energy Statistics:
  • Fossil energy statistics
  • Electricity statistics
  • Renewable energy statistics
  • Energy indicators system :
  1. Energy efficiency indicators
  • Macroeconomic indicators
  • Indicators related to the energy transformation sector
  • Sectoral indicators: transport, industry, residential, tertiary and Agriculture
  1. Energy policy monitoring indicators
  2. Indicators for monitoring the Sustainable Development Goals -SDG7

 

Long-term energy supply and demand analysis:

Several models used of which:

  • MEDPRO for energy demand analysis
  • LEAP for analyzing the energy supply-demand adequacy

Studies on the socio-economic impact of measures taken as part of the energy strategy:

These impact studies were conducted using either a Computable General Equilibrium Model or the LEAP model.

  • Development of cooperation with several data sources:
  1. Energy sector operators: ONEE, refinery, petroleum distribution companies, filling Centers, ONHYM, METRAGAZ, …;
  2. Exchange Office;
  3. Ministerial departments: HCP, MEF (DEPF)…;
  • Convergence to international standards for data collection and their  exploitation:

The data collected, processed according to international standards to:

  • Fill in the prospective models ;
  • Monitor the implementation of the energy policy;
  • Develop the inventory of greenhouse gases emissions for the  energy module;
  • Conduct studies on the socio-economic and environmental impacts of the measures taken as part of the energy strategy;
  • Develop indicators related to the energy sector, including those related to energy efficiency;
  • Develop the national energy balance according to international standards (IEA, EUROSTAT);
  • Respond to requests from various national and international organizations.

Several sectoral energy consumption surveys were carried out to achieve the following objectives:

  • Determining final energy consumption by sector of activity;
  • Establishing energy efficiency indicators by sector of activity;
  • Assessing sectoral greenhouse gas emissions;
  • Filling in the prospective models and basing sectoral energy demand projections on reliable, accurate and complete data;
  • Providing stakeholders with reliable statistical information on sectoral energy consumption.
