Series/Number: EUI RSCAS; 2014/03; Global Governance Programme-74; Europe in the World
This paper evaluates convergence of energy intensity for the former USSR countries during 1995-2010. We divide these countries into three clubs and show convergence in income and in energy intensity for each club. We also demonstrate that rate of convergence is higher in countries with a low level of development.
