Testing for convergence in electricity consumption across Croatian regions at the consumer's sectoral level

Energy Policy, 2017, vol. 102, issue C, 145-153

Abstract: Using the panel unit tests with and without structural break(s), the convergence hypothesis in relative per capita electricity consumption series is tested across Croatian regions during the period 2001–2013. The results are mixed, depending primarily on the consumption sector considered and the test applied. They indicate the necessity to conduct analysis and formulate energy policy measures on the sector-disaggregated and regional-specific electricity consumption time series.
