Title: Energy Intensity and Technology Sourcing: A Study of Manufacturing Firms in India
Source:Bulletin of Energy Economics, 3 (2)

This study focuses on the role of different sources of technology in determining the energy intensity of the firms. Using data from the Center for Monitoring Indian Economy, the authors model energy intensity and different sources of technologies usage. The major finding of the study is; firms those use disembodied technology imports are less energy intensive. Additionally, firms with R and D activities are less-energy intensive as compared to others. The authors also found an inverted ‘U’ shaped relationship between energy intensity and age of the firm, implying both older and younger firms tend to be more energy efficient.
