The main purpose of compiling energy balances is to show in one table the overall picture of energy production (or imports), conversion and consumption for each fuel utilized in the country. Without such an overall comprehensive picture, the consequences of policy and investment decisions are unlikely to be as well understood, and the effects of past decisions on total energy provision will not be monitored as effectively.
