Exergy and Carbon Data Explorer

The data presented in the exergy and carbon maps were collected from numerous sources and are stored in a relational database. The data were obtained from published sources, and can broadly be categorized within two levels of confidence. High-confidence data derives primarily from the International Energy Agency (IEA) Energy Statistics database. Prepared by the Energy Statistics Division of the International Energy Agency in cooperation with the Statistical Office of the European Communities, this source has the most detailed, complete, and reliable statistics on energy conversion and consumption. Our database uses data from 2006 since they are the most recent comprehensive data available. Data from 2007 have been published but are incomplete as of March 2009. Moderate-confidence data were collected from industry reports, recent journal articles, and calculations based on best estimates. It should be pointed out that collecting data from different sources may lead to significant statistical differences, since differing sources may have varied data collection methodologies. An effort was made to account for these statistical differences by matching the data collection methodologies using the IEA Statistics Database as a reference point.
