To ask the Secretary of State for Energy if he will list the energy intensity figure, in tonnes coal equivalent per $1,000 gross domestic product, for each of the European Community and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development countries in (a) 1973 and (b) the latest year for which figures are available in each case.
Figures for energy intensity in member countries, on the basis of tonnes of coal equivalent per $1,000 of GDP—at 1985 prices and exchange rates—are as follows:
Sources: Energy Balances of OECD Countries 1987–1988 (OECD, 1990) and Energy Balances of OECD Countries 1980–1989 (OECD, 1991).
Figures for energy intensity in member countries are published by the OECD, on the basis of tonnes of oil equivalent per $1,000 of GDP. The figures have been converted to the basis of tonnes of coal equivalent per $1,000 of GDP, using the standard conversion factor of 1.7.
