Abstract
The aim of this thesis is to investigate the correlation between the price of electric power and investments within the Swedish basic industry.

Moreover, five variables found in the literature on investment decisions are being used as a means of comparison. The results suggest that the electricity price affects the investment decisions within the basic chemical industry as well as the steel and metal industry. On a more abstract level, this thesis contributes to the understanding of one of the properties... (More)
