Abstract

This report outlines the long-term growth of GDP, total primary energy consumption, and industrial output with particular reference to the meaning of the recent "breaking of the energy coefficient". A major part of the report is devoted to the growth of energy prices, current and adjusted for inflation, and the response by the consuming sectors - industry, households, and road transportation - for groups of energy products.

The "savings" of given energy commodities by industries and households are analyzed in the light of changes in both industrial output and switches from coal and petroleum to natural gas and electricity, and occasionally back to coal.
