When observing energy productivity trends over time in a single geographic area, use the data reported in EUR per kilogram of oil equivalent (which uses GDP that is in chain linked volumes, reference year 2005 at 2005 exchange rates). To compare countries for the same year, use GDP in purchasing power standard per kilogram of oil equivalent.
