Abstract: Current paper investigates the short-run and the long-run relationships between energy use, GDP and fuel-specific CO2 emissions (namely solid, liquid and gas) by developing separate models for each emission for Israel in 1971-2011. ARDL Bounds Test is utilized for cointegration and we find that each model has cointegrating relationship. Then the short-run and the long-run coefficients are estimated. Error-correction models for all models suggest that long-run equilibriums take about 15-19 months. According to the long-run coefficient estimates, when elasticities of CO2 emissions from solid, liquid and gas fuels are 0.04, 0.30 and -0.02, respectively; GDP elasticities for all models vary between 0.66 and 0.96.
