Final energy consumption: final energy consumption - net of distribution losses (example: losses in power lines) - of all sectors of the economy, with the exception of quantities consumed by energy producers and transformers (example: own consumption of 'a refinery). Final energy consumption excludes energy used as a raw material (in petrochemicals in particular).
Primary energy consumption: final consumption + losses + consumption
energy producers and transformers (energy branch). Primary energy consumption is a measure of the national energy independence rate, while final energy consumption is used to monitor the penetration of various forms of energy in user sectors of the economy.
Corrected consumption: consumption corrected for temperature effects and possibly for the effects of other factors (hydraulicity, economic activity, working days). In the balance sheets, the corrections to final consumption relate only to temperature effects. The consumption observed before any correction is generally called actual consumption.
