  • The first work of its kind to carry out such an analysis
  • Looks at how energy use patterns and energy consumption are linked with the quality of life of individual
  • Takes a first step in identifying the key driving forces and some important trends

With energy consumption set to become one of the biggest issues in the daily lives of householders around the world, this book could not be more relevant – despite the fact that it focuses on India.

Pachauri adopts a socio-economic approach to analyzing the energy system and energy consumption in India from a household perspective.

In addition, the work incorporates two crucial aspects often ignored by many traditional modeling approaches that are characteristic of most developing countries, namely the importance of non-commercial sources of energy, mostly biofuels, and the very large diversity in the patterns of energy use in households with widely diverging lifestyles and well-being.

Adopting a household perspective allows for analyzing how energy use and consumption patterns are linked with the quality of life of individual households or persons and provides a novel view of the energy system and development in India.

This timely volume takes a first step in identifying key driving forces and some important trends in technical, economic, demographic, and lifestyle changes that have an impact on the patterns and use of energy within the co
