The Relationship Between per Capita Energy Use and Income per Capita Has Been Very Stable

First preview of the paper that I will be presenting at the IAEE meeting in New York in a couple of weeks. Using Penn World Table 7 data for GDP per capita and IEA data for energy use, we (me, Zsuzsanna Csereklyei and Mar Rubio) found that the relationship between energy use per capita and income per capita has been very stable from 1971 to 2010 for a group of 99 countries. I've prepared an animation that shows this relationship. Just click through the pages in the pdf to see what happens as countries have grown (or not) over time.
