Trends in Consumption and Production:Household Energy Consumption
PDF File Size: 234 KB | Download   
The household sector accounts for 15 to 25 per cent of primary energy use in developed countries and a higher share in developing countries. A huge gap remains between household energy use in developed and developing countries. Increase in energy-based living standards and more efficient energy use are major opposing trends in developed countries that affect household energy consumption. Diffusion of energy efficient technologies for cooking, heating, lighting, electrical appliances, and building insulation in developing countries has been slow. Governmental policies to influence household energy consumption are often contradictory and have brought mixed results. In 1997, as part of the five-year review of progress since the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (Earth Summit), a report on "Critical Trends: Global Change and Sustainable Development" was prepared examining long-term historical trends and future projections in such areas as population, energy and material consumption, agriculture and food supply, water and human development (ST/ESA/255). That review provided a basis for the policy recommendations presented to the Commission on
Sustainable Development and the nineteenth Special Session of the General Assembly. A second broad analysis of critical trends is to be prepared for the 2002 ten-year review of progress since the Earth Summit.
