International Energy Agency Energy Prices and Taxes, 1960-2022


Abstract copyright UK Data Service and data collection copyright owner.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) datasets published by the Energy Statistics Division (ESD) contain annual, quarterly and monthly time series data from 1960 onwards on energy production, trade, stocks, transformation, consumption, prices and taxes as well as on greenhouse gas emissions for the OECD Member countries and non-OECD countries world-wide. In OECD Member countries the data is collected by official bodies (most often the national statistics office in each country) from firms, government agencies and industry organisations and are then reported to the IEA using questionnaires to ensure international comparability. In non-OECD countries the data is collected directly from government and industry contacts and from national publications. The International Energy Agency (IEA) Energy Prices and Taxes database contains a major international compilation of energy prices at all market levels: import prices, industry prices and consumer prices. The statistics cover import costs and export prices of main petroleum products, natural gas and coal in Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries. End-user prices and taxes for selected petroleum, gas and coal products as well as for electricity are provided for industry, electricity generation and households for OECD countries and a selection of non-OECD countries. Full notes on sources and methods and a description of price mechanisms in each country are included. Time series availability varies with each data series. In general, end-user prices and taxes start in 1978, import costs in 1980 and spot prices in 1982. This database is updated by the IEA in January, April, July and October of each year. These data were first provided by the UK Data Service in June 2005 and is updated quarterly.
