   Assessing energy price induced improvements in efficiency of capital in OECD manufacturing industries
World Bank - Energy
17-Jun-2014


To assess how capital stocks adapt to energy price changes, it is necessary to account for the impacts on different vintages of capital and to account separately for price-induced and autonomous improvements in the energy efficiency of capital stock. The results of econometric analysis for five manu....
