Abstract

Whilst short-term changes in energy demand and the substitution of one fuel for another can be explained by energy prices and seasonal conditions by and large, long-term changes in energy sectors can be addressed by a number of diversified reasons such as countries’ deficient energy resources, openness to the development of unconventional energy resources which is presently led by developed countries, increasing energy needs mainly due to rising incomes and the provision of access to energy in poor regions of the world.
