A comparative analysis of energy indicators and CO2 emissions in 15 Arab countries
This study presents a comparative energy and emissions analysis of 15 Arab countries. The relation between energy consumption, CO2 emissions, Gross Domestic Product (GDP), and population is analysed in each of these countries through various energy and CO2 emission indicators: GDP Per Capita (GDPPC), TPES per capita (TPESPC), TPES/GDP, CO2/TPES, CO2 per capita and CO2/GDP. This study also analyses the final energy consumption in these countries according to the type of energy used in addition to its distribution in different sectors.
