    Abstract

    We develop and analyze physical energy intensity indicators for Indian manufacturing sector. Energy consumption in five industrial sub-sectors, viz., iron and steel, aluminium, textiles, paper and cement is examined for the period 1990Ä2005. It is feasible to develop specific energy consumption indicators that reflect the physical reality more accurately than monetary energy intensities. These indicators allow us to analyze the effect of change in product mix over time. The use of physical energy intensity indicators improves comparability between countries, offers valuable input for policy-makers regarding intra-sectoral structural changes, and provides detailed explanation for observed changes in energy intensity. Hence, the results of the study point out the need to use physical indicators for policy making.
