Abstract

This paper uses a complete decomposition model to study cross-country comparison of development trajectories of energy utilization and carbon emissions in developing economies. Variation in total energy consumption and carbon emissions is dominated by economic activity effect in 83 developing countries from 1980 to 2003. Country-specific contribution and comparative intensity analysis reveal that improvements in energy efficiency can be accompanied by a slower switch to cleaner or less carbon intensive fuels.
