  • Energy Balances and Electricity Profiles (U.N.)
    Provides energy balances for 141 countries and electricity profiles for 221 countries. The energy balances are snapshots of the annual energy flows in each country showing production, trade, transformation and consumption of energy products. They are presented in a common unit – Terajoules. The electricity profiles provide detailed information for each country on the production, trade and consumption of electricity, net installed capacity and thermal power plant input and efficiency.
  • Energy Information Administration 
    Data on various energy sources, as well as energy-related environmental data, and related information from other countries.
