Abstract. This paper investigates the electric energy tariff in the developing countries on the basis of per unit system analysis. The smallest actual value of a tariff in the sample of countries is considered as the base for the studied system and so, a comparison is done. A tariff map is proposed for the dynamic variation of tariffs in different countries where the map becomes as a texture image. When domestic energy prices in developing countries fall below opportunity costs, price increases are recommended to conserve fiscal revenue and to ensure efficient use of resources.   While the conservationist may be horrified at such waste of precious thermal energy, there are a number of cases where it would take a dramatic change, such as a further rise in energy ENERGY POLICY June Energy policy in developing countries prices, or a sudden improvement in the world's financial climate, to justify the capital intensive schemes that would be needed to use . Burning of fossil fuels creates short-term health risks from air pollution and long-term health risks from climate change. Therefore, energy policy and public health policy are closely and inextricably linked. Near-term health co-benefits will thus result from greenhouse gas mitigation policies. This chapter compares the U.S. Climate Action Plan along with other developed-country energy.

The pricing of energy is a mixture of elements, from social policy and employment considerations to economic spin-offs, basic equity considerations and . This is valid both for developed and developing countries. We can find plenty of diverse policy measures in different countries to promote energy efficiency effectively, but their success is almost dependent on a strong national political will and enforcement, transparency and accountability.
