The chapter begins with an introduction to the concept of energy requirements of households and related literature on this topic. A discussion of the methodology used for calculating total household energy requirements for India using national level data on private final consumption expenditures, and the calculated primary energy intensities of producing sectors that were presented in the last chapter, follows. After briefly introducing some of the terminology and the data sources used for the analysis, results relating to total, direct and indirect energy requirements per capita, and for total energy requirements of all households in India are presented. In Sect. 4.4, the relative importance of the main drivers of the observed changes in household energy requirements over the study period are determined using a decomposition analysis for changes in both the total as well as in each of the major categories of indirect energy requirement. Finally, some comparisons of the results of this study are made with previous studies.
