Energy Demand Analysis at a Disaggregated Level

  • Subhes C. Bhattacharyya


The purpose of this chapter is to consider energy demand at the fuel level or at the sector level. Each sector or fuel has its specific features that an aggregated analysis cannot capture. A disaggregated analysis also requires more detailed information. This chapter first presents the disaggregation of energy demand, discusses the information issues and introduces frameworks/tools for a disaggregated analysis.
