This book addresses the impact of different input factors of production, market, consumer, and producers’ characteristics on the industrial sector’s energy demand for South Korea during the period 1970–2007. The book aims at formulating an energy demand structure for the South Korean industrial sector as a tool to enable producers and policy makers to evaluate different alternatives toward reducing energy consumption, and using energy in an efficient way. Industrial policy decision makers need to understand the importance of the energy input in the industrial production structure, in order to assess and formulate necessary measures for energy conservation.
