00 In this table, primary energy comprises commercially traded fuels only. 05. economic growth tend to move in parallel. Economic development is an energy-intensive process which ultimately raises living standards and facilitates broad access to electricity and motorized transportation. Economic development of the infrastructure also causes growth in energy-intensive manufacturing industries. In contrast to the developing countries, in advanced industrialized countries the link between economic growth and energy consumption is relatively weak, with energy demand growth lagging behind economic growth.

Through a series of summits, notably Rio in 1992 and Kyoto in 1997, the nations formulated an international framework for reducing global CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions. e. CO2, nitrous oxide, methane, hydrofluorocarbon gases [HFCs], perfluorocarbons [PFCs] and sulphur hexafluoride) by at least 5% compared with 1990 levels between 2008 and 2012 [22]. However, the EU aims to reduce its emissions of the main six greenhouse gases (from 1990 levels) by 8% by 2012 [23,24]. In order to meet this target, the EU member states have taken various steps, including tightening building regulations and the introduction of carbon taxes.
