The indicator serves to highlight the evolution in energy intensity within each sector. The denominators for the sectoral energy intensities are, respectively: GDP for total, transport, population for households, GDP, Gross Value added in industry for industry and Gross Value Added in Services for tertiary and Gross Value Added in Agriculture for Agriculture.
