Implementation of energy
accounts in Finland
The 7th Oslo Group Meeting, Helsinki

Energy accounts were the first application of Natural resource
accounting compiled at Statistics Finland in late 1980s, on 1985
The application was updated in 1995, on 1990 data
Physical Energy Flow Accounts are one module of environmental
accounting regulation of the EU
The module is expected to come into force in 2015, and accounts
on years 2013-2015 have to be reported to Eurostat in December
Project on energy accounts in Finland started in spring 2012
Jonna Hakala
Energy accounts compatible with other modules of physical and
monetary environmental accounts, such as
Air emission accounts
Economy-wide material flow accounts
Environmentally related taxes by economic activity
Compilation system of physical supply and use tables for energy
flows in Finland 2008-2011
Identification of elements of energy accounting calculation system
that could be integrated into planned production system of energy
Jonna Hakala
The biggest risk of the project is the availability and
quality of the data at detailed classification levels
required for product flows and branches of industry
(NACE A*64)
Especially the energy use of the service sector may be
problematic to disaggregate into such detailed level
Jonna Hakala
Project group consists of experts on
 environmental accounts
 energy statistics
 air emission statistics and accounts
 monetary supply-use tables
 Units represented in the steering group
 Environment and Energy Statistics
 Greenhouse Gas Inventory
 National Accounts
Jonna Hakala
The main steps
Identification of data sources
Energy statistics, Energy balance
Data from monetary supply-use tables
Other data sources
Development of methodology and calculation system
Identification of links to production system of energy statistics
Testing the system of energy accounts with 2010 data
Improvements to calculation system
Supply-use tables 2008-2011
Jonna Hakala
Energy accounts
Physical Energy Flow Accounts (PEFA): Supply-use tables
including all energy forms and fuels
Basic structure adopted from the System of EnvironmentalEconomic Accounting (SEEA)
 Natural inputs, products, residuals; more than 100 items
 All branches of industry (NACE A*64), households,
accumulation, import and export, environment
Unit: Terajoule
The main differences with respect to energy statistics:
Branches of industry highly disaggregated, especially in
manufacturing industries and services
Residence principle as in National Accounts

Jonna Hakala
Good starting points
 Clear target: physical input and output of energy by fuel/product
and by branch of industry
 Close co-operation between energy statisticians, environmental
accountants and national accountants
 Domestic demand of energy accounts connected to air emission
accounts, material flow accounts, environmental taxes and
monetary supply-use tables
 Challenges
 Very detailed level of product flows and branches of industry
(NACE A*64), especially on services
 Modelling and estimates needed for disaggregation and
residence principle -approach
 Data confidentiality of some branches and products
