    schema:reviewBody ""The book presents a novel socio-economic approach to analysing the energy system and energy consumption in India from a household perspective. In doing so, it views households as the ultimate end-consumers and estimates and analyses the direct and indirect energy requirements of household consumption, both at an aggregate national level as well as at a disaggregate household level. In addition, the work incorporates two crucial aspects often ignored by many energy studies that are characteristic of most developing countries, namely the importance of non-commercial sources of biomass energy in the energy systems of these countries, and the enormous diversity and inequality in the patterns of energy access and use across households with different lifestyles and levels of well being. Adopting a household perspective allows for analyzing how energy use and consumption patterns and the overall development of the energy system and economy. The work makes a first significant step in identifying key driving forces and trends in economic, technical, demographic, and lifestyles factors that have had an impact on energy use patterns in India over the last couple of decades. The results should be of interest to inform academics, researchers, policymakers and practitioners as well as those interested in energy analysis and development policy."--Jacket." ;
