The high energy efficiency paradigm

The 1980s saw the emergence of a new energy perspective, which may be termed a paradigm of high energy efficiency, as part of the process of sustainable economic development recommended by the report Our Common Future of the World Commission for Environment and Development (1987). This innovative concept of economic development requires that current economic actions must not impair the economic options of future generations, and therefore energy systems must be redesigned to reduce the use of...

Modelling UK energy demand

This chapter describes recent energy demand modelling by the Economics and Statistics Division of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) (formerly the Department of Energy), focusing on some of the ongoing research into the domestic sector's energy demand. Various sectoral long-term own-price energy and output elasticities are reported with particular emphasis on the domestic sector, reflecting the most recent research efforts. These are compared with previous estimates of elasticities and...

Elasticities for OECD aggregate final energy demand

The IEA model is used primarily for the construction of global long-term energy scenarios that serve as the basis for IEA's Energy Outlook. Its global orientation imposes a fairly aggregate treatment of energy demand. In terms of final demand, there are ten regions, four fuels and three consuming sectors. Most of the demand parameters are econometrically estimated over the period 1960-90, with great emphasis being placed on the use of end use prices rather than primary fuel prices. The results...

Endogenous technological progress in fossil fuel demand

Laurence Boone, Stephen Hall, David Kemball-Cook and Clare Smith This chapter reports on work to develop energy demand sectors for the Global Econometric Model (GEM), maintained jointly by the London Business School and the National Institute for Economic and Social Research. We have derived data for the total fossil fuel energy consumption, energy prices, GDP and general prices for the main OECD countries (Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Japan, the UK and the United...
