Energy Demand in the Industrial Sector

Part of the Topics in Energy book series (TENE)


The study of energy consumption in the industrial sector from 1950 to 1977 allows one to isolate three groups of countries. Those with a rapid consumption growth, Japan, Italy and the Netherlands, where industrial energy consumption has respectively undergone a ten-fold, seven-fold and six-fold increase; then the U.S.A., France, Belgium, Federal Repubhc of Germany, and Sweden, with a rather similar growth rate but much slower than that of the three leading countries (a 2.5 increase approxhnately); finaUy the U.K., with a very slow development (of approximately 1%).
