Energy efficiency index (ODEX)


Calculated by aggregating the individual changes in energy consumption, observed on certain levels of end-use. ODEX indicator does not show the current level of energy intensity, but the improvement over the base year.

Calculated for each year as the ratio of actual energy consumption in a given year and the theoretical energy consumption which does not take into account the individual effect (ie, assuming the previous level of energy intensity in the production processes). In order to reduce random fluctuations 3-year moving average is calculated. The decrease of indicator value represents an increase of energy efficiency.
