Energy Consumption Detail

Energy demand is primarily a function of energy price, economic development level (energy demand per unit of GDP rises initially and falls with further development), and the overall size of GDP. The user can intervene to introduce scenarios influencing energy demand.

Energy demand/consumption translates directly into carbon dioxide emissions and therefore long-term levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide.
