Abstract

The interested researchers to detect the relationship between energy consumption (EC), economic growth (GDP) and (C02) have been increased. In this paper we are going to reexamine that relationship but by using different transformation forms; natural logarithm and inverse form then compare between the estimated models to detect which is the best model could represent the relationship. The data have been selected from group of developed countries as a panel over the period 1960 to 2012 by applying dynamic panel data approach. The significant findings support that there is a strong relationship between GDP, EC and C02 at 1% significance level in all cases. And the estimated period effect model by using inverse form is the best model fits the data, as C02 can be explained about 89% by the GDP and EC. In additional of that the EKC has been detected in estimated cross section effect model with value 1635.98 USDS.
