This paper is intended to give a more detailed overview of energy supply and consumption patterns of the GDR, Rhone-Alpes and Wisconsin for the comparative energy study.

There are two main difficulties in collecting such data: (1) for GDR it is the scarcity of public data before 1972 that would give a complete set of information on the energy supply sector; and (2) the different economic structure of the Rhone-Alpes creates the problem that many data are not available on a regional level, especially in the economic sector.

In the case of Wisconsin, publications of prior studies performed at the Institute of Environmental Studies at the University of Wisconsin have been reproduced -- either in original form or after conversions to facilitate the comparison with the other regions -- because these data are closest to the degree of aggregation that is desired for this project.

This data collection is very imperfect in that it does not present a short listing of energy use by fuel type and user group, or of the activities of each economic sector, measured in the same units for all three regions. Another drawback is that only a few long-range trends can be extracted from these data. It is hoped that such a listing in more detail than the one given in the first working paper can soon be presented.
