Abstract

The relationship between electricity consumption and economic growth has been intensively studied in energy economics. However, there are mixed evidence on the relationship, possibly due to omission of other relevant variables and low power of traditional cointegration tests in small samples. This paper examines the relationship between exports, electricity consumption and real income in an emerging market economy for the period 1971-2007. Employing bounds testing procedure, we find evidence of cointegration when real income is considered the dependent variable. In the long run, exports and electricity consumption have statistically significant and positive impact on economic growth.
