  • Energy indicator sector [GUIDE 12]
    Sectoral energy efficiency indicators are used to show the energy efficiency progress on the economic sector level. For energy evaluation in an industrial sector, indicators on process or appliance level are used most often. The relevant indicator in this case is the energy consumption per unit of physical output. This figure, in combination with the output of product per year, gives the final energy use for a specific process or appliance.
