Total energy intensity 1995-2006 (index 1995=100), relative energy intensity (as PPS) and per capita consumption
The second to last column shows the energy intensity measured in purchasing power standards relative to the EU-27. These are currency conversion rates that both convert to a common currency and equalise the purchasing power of different currencies (by analysing the prices paid in each country for a basket of similar goods and services). They eliminate the differences in price levels between countries, allowing meaningful volume comparisons of GDP. They are an optimal unit for benchmarking country performance in a particular year.
