Having reliable data and indicators on how energy is used is key to informing and monitoring the effectiveness of energy efficiency policies. Highlighting the importance of such data, the IEA has for the first time published an Energy Efficiency Indicators database with annual data from 2000 to 2015.

The database covers end use energy consumption for 8 energy products and includes end use energy efficiency indicators and carbon intensity indicators for 4 sectors (residential, services, industry and transport) for IEA member countries. These indicators are computed by using key sectorial activity data.

Given that by 2021 the global cost of cybersecurity breaches across all sectors will reach US$6 trillion, cyber threats are a critical area of focus.
