Why is it important?

We conduct time series STIRPAT analysis for Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Russia. • We examine the energy impact of disaggregated population age groups. • Age groups, affluence and oil prices are significant for per capita energy use. • Age groups of 35–49 and 50–64 have a large impact on energy use. • Speed of adjustments is different depending on country and age group considered.
