Comprehensive Energy Use Database,
1990 to 2010
The Comprehensive Energy Use Database provides an overview of sectoral energy markets in Canada and in each region of the country.*
These tables are intended to complement data published in the Energy Use Data Handbook.
* The user should be aware that this edition of the Comprehensive Energy Use Database, 1990 to 2010 is based on the revised Report on Energy Supply and Demand (RESD), 1995–2010, which represents a resetting of the energy balances for Canada. The RESD data were released September 14, 2012, on CANSIM and include revisions for all sectors because of the incorporation of the full Industrial Consumption of Energy (ICE) survey and the Survey of Secondary Distributors of Refined Petroleum Products. Previously, the industrial estimates were based on a representative sample of enterprises in the ICE survey by sector. The revised RESD now incorporates all enterprises in the survey to present a more complete and accurate view. The revised RESD data also incorporate results from the Survey of Secondary Distributors of Refined Petroleum Products. This change caused a re-allocation of energy use to end-users of refined petroleum products and away from the commercial sector.
This publication reflects these revisions over time, and every effort has been made to preserve historical trends. However, use caution when comparing this data set and analysis to the previous versions because the level of energy use may have changed and growth rates may have been revised.
