Energy efficiency and the productivity race in industry

Nielsen, Hana LU ; Henriques, Sofia LU ; Warde, Paul and Kander, Astrid LU (2016) Economic History Society Conference, 2016
Abstract
The major aim of this paper is to analyze energy use and particularly energy productivity in some of the major manufacturing processes, such as iron and steel or paper production. Energy, as one of factors of production and substitute to labor, has often been neglected in various productivity benchmark studies. It is the aim of this paper to further investigate this relationship between energy and labor productivity, with a specific focus on the manufacturing industries across Europe and the US.
