Fuel and power

The fuel and power economy of the region, in line with the generally low level of economic development, is characterized both by its relatively small share in world production and consumption and by the relatively small proportion of mineral fuels and water power in its total energy utilization. In 1937, mineral fuels and water power made up only some 40 per cent of the region’s energy consumption for productive purposes, while fuel wood accounted for 10 per cent and animate sources for 50 per cent. In North America and Europe, the proportion accounted for by mineral fuels and water power in the same year was some 90 per cent.
