Abstract

This paper examines the causes of heterogeneity in energy technology across a large set of manufacturing plants. This paper explores how regional and intertemporal variation in energy prices, availability, and volatility influences a plant's energy technology adoption decision. Additionally, plant characteristics, such as size and energy intensity, are shown to greatly impact the energy technology adoption decision. A model of the energy technology adoption is developed and the parameters of the model are estimated using a large, plant-level dataset from the 1985 Manufacturing Energy Consumption Survey (MECS).
