Energy Pricing Policy Framework and Experience in Developing Countries

  • Mohan Munasinghe

Abstract

Today’s societies require increasing amounts of energy for domestic, industrial, commercial, agricultural, and transport uses. These energy needs are met by the commercial energy sources including the short-term, depletable fossil fuel supplies — petroleum, coal, and natural gas — as well as the long term, renewable sources — hydroelectric, biomass, solar, geothermal, wind, and tidal power (Munasinghe and Schramm, 1983).
