Nuclear Energy and Economic Growth
What is it about?
The paper aims to study the relationship between economic growth, nuclear energy consumption and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions for a panel of 25 countries over a period of 1993-2010. Through this study, the author has provided an insight into one of the available sources of energy, i.e. nuclear energy and its impact on economic growth and CO2 emissions.
Why is it important?
Keeping in mind the signiﬁcance of nuclear energy consumption in economic growth and less/no GHG emissions generated by nuclear energy, this study validates its signiﬁcance. This study, to the best of the author’s knowledge, considers the largest panel (i.e. 25 countries) to date and the only study that focuses on studying three different panels (complete dataset, developed countries, developing countries) in one study and applies the vector error correction mechanism to study the causal relationship between nuclear energy consumption, CO2 emissions and economic growth.
