Energy consumption and GDP: causality relationship in G-7 countries and emerging markets

2003-01-01
The causality relationship between energy consumption and income is a well-studied topic in energy economics. This paper studies the time series properties of energy consumption and GDP and reexamines the causality relationship between the two series in the top 10 emerging markets-excluding China due to lack of data-and G-7 countries. We discover bi-directional causality in Argentina, causality running from GDP to energy consumption in Italy and Korea, and from energy consumption to GDP in Turkey, France, Germany and Japan. Hence, energy conservation may harm economic growth in the last four countries.

Disaggregate energy consumption, employment and income in Turkey
Sarı, Ramazan; Soytaş, Uğur (2004-05-01)
The purpose of this paper is to contribute to literature on energy consumption and economic growth relationship by examining how much of the variance in national income growth can be explained by the growth of different sources of energy consumption and employment in Turkey. We use the recently developed generalized forecast error variance decomposition technique of Koop et al. [J. Econom. 74 (1996) 119] and Pesaran and Shin [Econ. Lett. 58 (1998) 17] to determine the information content of the growth rate ...
Energy consumption, economic growth, and carbon emissions: Challenges faced by an EU candidate member
Soytaş, Uğur; Sarı, Ramazan (2009-04-15)
This paper investigates the long run Granger causality relationship between economic growth, carbon dioxide emissions and energy consumption in Turkey, controlling for gross fixed capital formation and labor. The most interesting result is that carbon emissions seem to Granger cause energy consumption, but the reverse is not true. The lack of a long run causal link between income and emissions may be implying that to reduce carbon emissions, Turkey does not have to forgo economic growth.
Energy consumption, income, and carbon emissions in the United States
Soytaş, Uğur; Sarı, Ramazan (2007-05-15)
This paper investigates the effect of energy consumption and output on carbon emissions in the United States. Earlier research focused on testing the existence and/or shape of an environmental Kuznets curve without taking energy consumption into account. We investigate the Granger causality relationship between income, energy consumption, and carbon emissions, including labor and gross fixed capital formation in the model. We find that income does not Granger cause carbon emissions in the US in the long run...
Energy system analysis of a pilot net-zero exergy district
Kılkış, Şiir (2014-11-01)
The Rational Exergy Management Model (REMM) provides an analytical model to curb primary energy spending and CO2 emissions by means of considering the level of match between the grade/quality of energy resources (exergy) on the supply and demand sides. This model is useful for developing forward-looking concepts with an energy systems perspective. One concept is net-zero exergy districts, which produce as much energy at the same grade or quality as consumed on an annual basis. This paper analyzes the distri...
Multiple objective energy and environmental policy analysis
Yıldız, Şahan; Köksalan, Murat; Department of Industrial Engineering (2015)
Energy policy research studies need to consider several objectives since the energy sector is closely related with economy, environmental quality, and supply security. Before 70s, studies were based on a one-way relationship between the energy sector and the economy, and they tried to estimate energy demand given the level of economic activity. However, the Arabic oil embargo, which doubled the energy prices, resulted in an economic crisis since energy is an intermediate good which is used in almost all pro...
