Abstract: Abstract This paper aims to investigate the relationship between renewable and non-renewable energy consumption and economic growth in the G7 countries (Canada, France, Germany, United Kingdom, Italy and the United States) for the period of 1990–2015. The study used the Pesaran CADF panel second generation unit root test to verify the stationary properties of the variables. To examine the short-run and long-run dynamics the study employed panel autoregressive distributed lag (P-ARDL) model. The empirical findings suggest that there is a presence of cross-sectional dependency among the variables. The panel ARDL model confirms that energy price, labor force, and capital stock have positive and statistically significant long-run impact on economic growth in the G7 countries. The short run dynamics of the result recommend that there is a short run causality between non-renewable energy consumption and economic growth and capital stock to economic growth. The Hausman test found that PMG is more efficient than MG and DFE.
