Abstract: In this paper we study the long- term trend of energy intensity for Iran. We use a quadratic function of the logarithm of income to take account of the change in trend of energy intensity and test the non-monotonic relationship between energy intensity and income during 1967- 2002. We find that the long-run coefficient on squared income is negative and significant, indicating a change in trend of energy intensity
