Title: Electricity Consumption and Economic Growth in China: Assessing Granger Causality at Provincial, Electricity-Market and National Levels
Author: Xenophon, Aleksis

School/Discipline: School of Economics
Abstract: The following thesis investigates the relationship between electricity consumption and economic growth in China over the period 1985-2012. Long and short run Granger causal relationships between these variables are ascertained by applying a vector error correction model to national, electricity-market, and provincial-level data. A comparison is then made between the relationships obtained from these different datasets. The results suggest that a large amount of information is lost as a result of aggregation, with data at the national and electricity-market levels being unable to accurately reflect prevailing relationships observed at the provincial level. This observation is particularly relevant given the predominance of national level studies found in the literature.
