The e-book provides a unique socio-economic method of analysing the - ergy procedure and effort intake in India from a family persp- tive. In doing so, it perspectives families because the final end-consumers and estimates and analyses the direct and oblique power specifications of loved ones intake, either at an combination nationwide point in addition to at a disaggregate loved ones point. moreover, the paintings comprises c- cial facets frequently overlooked via many power reports which are attribute of so much constructing international locations, particularly the significance of non-commercial assets of biomass power within the strength structures of those nations, and the large variety and inequity within the styles of strength entry and use throughout families with diverse existence and degrees of health. This paintings was once initiated as a part of my Ph.D. thesis on the Centre for - ergy coverage and Economics (CEPE) on the Swiss Federal Institute of Te- nology in Z urich (ETHZ ). The thesis used to be accomplished on the finish of 2002.

This has in fact been the fastest growing end-use vector in the country. 5 to 12% per annum. If one looks at the mix of electricity generation for utilities, over the years there has been a clear movement in favour of fossil-based generation as can be seen from Fig.

2 Energy Analysis Methods in Practice Two different methodologies have been developed to calculate the total energy requirements of different items and processes. One that developed out of the engineering profession was termed process analysis. The other had its origins in economics and is referred to as input-output energy analysis. A combination of the two techniques, termed hybrid analysis, has also been applied (Bullard et al. 1978). It combines the advantages of process analysis and the input-output technique.

But the difference in the amount of energy used is not the whole story. There is also an essential difference in the way energy is used. Industrialised countries support high living standards by providing food, water and energy through systems that depend on high inputs of energy, capital and materials. Meanwhile for many people in developing countries energy and materials are desperately needed to take them beyond a level of basic subsistence. However, the rate of growth of energy use in India has been faster compared to most developed countries, over the last couple of decades.
