The Extended Energy-Growth Nexus: Theory and Empirical Applications advances the established bivariate econometric relationship which inextricably links energy consumption to economic growth. The book extends this "nexus" to accommodate variables such as globalization, institutional variables, financial variables and the energy "mix." Rooted firmly in the modern literature, it covers empirical applications such as the evaluation of renewable energy incentives, the electricity generation mix, and sustainable development. Each application area incorporates modern econometric methodologies, including VAR, panel VAR, ARDL, panel ARDL, Asymmetric panel ARDL, and Panel Quantile Regression. Throughout chapters are accompanied by illustrative Stata and EViews code, demonstrating their uses in applied research.

Key Features

  • Provides a rich set of working tools for econometricians working on real-world energy and growth problems
  • Accompanied by representative databases and illustrative Stata and EViews code, facilitating replication and use


Graduate students and 1st year PhD students, researchers and practitioners in the fields of energy economics and economic growth
