The energetic metabolism of the EU-15 and the USA. Decadal energy input time-series with an emphasis on biomass: Online energy flow dataset.

This dataset contains data on the energetic metabolism of the EU-15 countries from 1970 to 2001 and for the USA from 1980-2000. It provides data on domestic extraction, import and export of energy, including biomass used for food, feed, fibre, energy and all other purposes in EJ/yr as well as GJ/cap/yr. It also provides data on the technical energy consumption as well as some derived indicators (Energy flows per unit of GDP and per unit area).
