Electricity (In)Efficiency In Transition Economies: Evidence From A Firm’S Survey
AbstractThe paper describes the main determinants of electricity efficiency / inefficiency in 27 transition economies. We use the BEEPS enterprise survey done in 2008-2009 over 2400 enterprises. We provide a detailed analysis of the enterprise electricity intensity patterns. In particular, we shed light on the role played by firm characteristics and some key economic drivers, such as bad management and local financial constraint. We present an original analysis and findings on the effect of the poor access to electricity supply on firm’s electricity costs.
