Habit Formation and Consumption of Energy for Heating: Evidence from a Panel of Danish Households
The Energy Journal, 2007, vol. Volume 28, issue Number 2, 35-54
In this paper we ask if consumption of energy for space heating by households is habit forming. A model of intertemporal consumption allocation allowing for habit-forming preferences is estimated on a register-based panel data set with high quality information about consumption of natural gas for a sample of Danish households. Results indicate that preferences are weakly habit forming.
