The aim is to measure and understand the long-term factors behind trends in energy and carbon intensity in different economies and how improvements in energy efficiency diffuse globally. Of particular interest is the rate of diffusion from developed to developing countries and the factors that affect that diffusion. Countries included will be Australia, major European economies, USA, Canada, Mexico, Japan, China, and India. The conference presentation will present initial results from this project.
