Energy Savings Potential and Policy for Energy Conservation in Selected Indian Manufacturing Industries

Published By: NIPFP on eSS | Published Date: September, 01 , 2012

This paper focuses on the assessment of energy savings potential in seven highly energy consuming industries. The paper estimates the energy savings potential for each of these industries using unit level Annual Survey of Industries data for 2007-08. The paper further develops an econometric model admitting substitutability among energy and other non-energy inputs as well as that among fuels using translog cost function for the selected industries and also for the manufacturing sector as a whole to study the behavioural response of the industries to changes in factor prices or fuel prices. The model uses time series data. [NIPFP Working Paper No. 2012-105]. URL:[].
