Title

Entrepreneurship and energy consumption patterns: case of hoseholds in selected countries


Abstract

Entrepreneurship is about pooling not necessarily available resources for implementation activities, which are to be characterized by competitive advantage over other ones. The following question is being raised: how entrepreneurial behavior in energy usage area affects competitive advantage of companies’ developing activities in different countries. There is almost unanimous agreement, that energy saving behavior is considered as important irrespective of country, in which a business is located. We question this assumption, and seek to find out how much attitudes differ, and if they depend on level of countries’ development. It is supposed that entrepreneurial behavior styles are closely related to households’ habits. Hence, in order to answer the question raised household energy usage patterns in selected countries will be tackled and compared, consistent patterns identified. The results found would contribute to research of entrepreneurship styles and their impact on long-rage competitiveness of business companies.
