Abstract

The current level of per-capita energy use in developing countries could be sufficient to support the creation of an industrial infrastructure and a standard of living ranging from that presently found in developing countries to that found in Western Europe. This would depend on the extent to which there is a shift to modern energy carriers, an emphasis on energy-efficient end-use technologies now available, and a commercialization of advanced energy-saving technologies.
