What is Energy Consumption Pattern

Encyclopedia of Information Science and Technology, Fourth Edition
The way and total use of energy may be defined as its pattern. In general energy is classifies into two main groups: renewable and non-renewable. Renewable energy is the cleanest sources of energy and non-renewable sources are not environmental friendly source of energy. According to (Akhter Hossain, 2012 ) GDP and energy consumption of developing countries are increasing exponentially, whereas GDP and energy consumption of developed countries are increasing linearly.

Heating Degree Days (HDD), in cases where temperatures are below 18°C, and Cooling Degree Days (CDD), in cases where temperatures are above 21°C, were used as energy consumption indices. During the last half century, mean annual temperatures have increased and as a consequence, CDD in the warm season have increased sharply. In the same time slice, HDD, even in the cool and cold season have declined steadily. The number of monthly and annual total HDD (mean= 1556) are much higher than CDD (mean=400) in the case study area and annual total HDD and CDD have a negative correlation (Pearson correlation = - 0.493; p = 0.001). The deceasing rate of HDD is limited and steady (R2= 0.062, p=0.099), but the increasing rate of CDD in the same time slice is sharp (R2=0.427, p=0.813). This shows that energy consumption patterns have increased sharply, and with available projection scenarios, is projected to increase more rapidly, leading to higher energy costs.

Consumption pattern of energy includes consumption of coal, crude oil and natural gas, petroleum products, electricity. India will overtake China as the largest growth market for energy by late 2020s with the country’s energy consumption growing by more than 4.2% per annum, the fastest among all major economies of the world, according to BP Energy Outlook 2018.
