Purpose – This study aims to examine the effects of energy consumption on economic growth by means of a panel data analysis of 75 net energy-importing countries for the period 1990 to 2012. Design/methodology/approach – For the purpose of the analysis, the countries are classified into two groups, and each group is then classified into subgroups. The first group is formed based on the energy import dependence of the countries and is classified into two subgroups according to whether their… Expand

In this paper, we examine the relationship between energy consumption and economic growth in selected oil exporting and oil importing countries using annual data form from 1980 to 2014. The paperExpand
The Impacts of Energy Consumption, Energy Prices and Energy Import-Dependency on Gross and Sectoral Value-Added in Sri Lanka
Drifting away from the neoclassical growth conjecture of economic growth being solely dependent on capital and labor inputs, this paper aimed to evaluate the dynamic impacts of energy consumption,Expand
Does energy trilemma a driver of economic growth? The roles of energy use, population growth, and financial development
Abstract Economic growth can increase the economy's energy intensity, impeding security through unmanaged demand and affecting sustainability. This study employed energy use, population growth, andExpand

Energy efficiency-economic growth nexus: What is the role of income inequality?
Abstract The Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 7 stresses the importance for economies around the world to double their efforts in improving energy efficiency. Energy efficiency improvements haveExpand
What determines renewable energy consumption? Startling evidence from Ghana
Purpose Owing to the adverse effect of carbon dioxide emission, there have been calls for economies to rely on (cleaner) renewable energy. Although empirical studies on the subject matter abound theExpand
Testing dependence patterns of energy consumption with economic expansion and trade openness through wavelet transformed coherence in top energy-consuming countries
TLDR
The findings of the study reiterate the importance of energy consumption in the development of these economies and suggest that energy policies aimed at improving efficiency in the production and consumption of energy will not hurt economic growth. Expand
Does the level of energy intensity matter in the effect of energy consumption on the growth of transition economies? Evidence from dynamic panel threshold analysis
This study investigates whether the effect of energy consumption on economic growth differs by the level of energy intensity. We employ an advanced dynamic panel threshold regression model to testExpand

TLDR
Time‐series analysis shows that energy and GDP cointegrate, and energy use Granger causes GDP when capital and other production inputs are included in the vector autoregression model, however, various mechanisms can weaken the links between energy and growth. Expand
