This study was undertaken in response to a request by U.S. Representative
Philip R. Sharp, Chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives
Subcommittee on Energy and Power. Congressman Sharp's request sought a
review of international energy and economic data to compare energy use
patterns across countries and in the context of major energy end-use sectors.
The purpose of the review was to identify differences in energy use patterns
which could be suggestive of opportunities both to economize on the use of
fossil fuel energy (i.e., oil, natural gas, and coal) and to reduce greenhouse gas

The document is divided into three major sections: 1)An analysis of energy use and carbon
emissions is presented contrasting trends in economically developed and developing areas
of the world since 1970; 2) A disaggregated view of the "Group of Seven" (G-7) key
industrialized countries (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and
the United States); 3) An examination of sectoral energy use patterns within each of the
G-7 countries.

of subscribers, such as public and academic libraries, Federal, State, local and
foreign governments, EIA survey respondents, and the media. For further
