With the recent publication of the tables for 1998-99, consistent tables for four years have become available at the 115 sector classification level. The Commodity by Commodity tables for 1989-90, 1993-94 and 1998-99, (CSO 1997, CSO 2000, CSO 2005) and the Commodity by In- 44 Chapter 3: Energy Analysis and Energy Intensities for India dustry Absorption Matrix for 1983-842 (CSO 1990) form the basis of the analysis carried out to determine average sectoral energy intensities for India over this period.

But the difference in the amount of energy used is not the whole story. There is also an essential difference in the way energy is used. Industrialised countries support high living standards by providing food, water and energy through systems that depend on high inputs of energy, capital and materials. Meanwhile for many people in developing countries energy and materials are desperately needed to take them beyond a level of basic subsistence. However, the rate of growth of energy use in India has been faster compared to most developed countries, over the last couple of decades.

There are, however, many reasons for including imports especially in the case of countries that have large imports as excluding them would result in an error in estimation of energy intensities. For the case of India, though, the monetary value of imports varied between 5-8% of final demand in the period from 1983-84 to 1998-99, with the remaining demand being met out of domestic output. The commodity composition of imports during that period reveals that imports of direct energy, especially crude petroleum, natural gas, and petroleum products, contributed a very large share of total imports.
