Consommation d'énergie et performances économiques au Cameroun
[Energy consumption and economic performance in Cameroon]
AbstractThis paper investigates the relationship between energy consumption and economic performance in Cameroon. The econometric analysis shows that there is no Granger causality between electricity consumption and economic performance both at national level (GDP) and primary sector level (value added of agriculture). At secondary sector level, it is economic performance (value added of industry) that Granger causes electricity consumption, while at tertiary sector level, the causality goes from electricity consumption to economic performance (value added of services). So, any policy aimed at strengthening growth and reduce poverty must pay special attention on energy production.
