The Effect Of Energy Mix On The Level Of Underlying Efficiency In OECD Countries
(11/29/2014) - Others energy economics

Mahsa Moshrefi and Basil Sharp


Since the Industrial Revolution, fossil fuels have been a major source of energy around the world. This source of energy has provided more than 80% of the whole primary energy in the world. The main merit of fossil fuel is controllability of its extraction in contrast with other sources of energy, such as renewable energy resources. Fossil fuels are a stock resource which can be extracted at the required rate; however, renewable energy, such as wind and solar, not hydro and geo is mainly a flow type of energy whose rate of flow cannot be controlled. There are several other advantages of fossil fuels, such as high energy density, high energy return on Energy Invested (ERoEI), low cost, ease of transport, distribution, and combustion, and high flexibility for conversion to different forms of secondary energy. While this energy resource has several advantages, countries will not be able to rely merely on this source of energy (Ishida 2013), because of environmental problems caused by fossil fuel consumption and increasing relative. Thus, countries have started to focus on energy efficiency.
