La evolución de la intensidad energética de la industria vasca entre 1982-2001: Un análisis de descomposición
In this article an index decomposition methodology is used to estimate the effect of intersectorial and intrasectorial changes in explaining the 38% reduction in industrial energy intensity in the Basque Autonomous Community from 1982 to 2001. Period-wise additive decomposition results show that (1) the decline is fully explained by intrasectorial changes and that (2) intersectorial changes have not contributed to reduce but to increase the energy intensity of the Basque industrial sector. However, timeseries decomposition analysis shows that (1) four different phases can be distinguished in the evolution of energy intensity of the Basque industry from 1982 to 2001 and (2) that the evolution of the ܉ron and Steelݠsector is determinant when explaining those phases. Moreover, the analysis stresses the necessity to disaggregate the ܉ron and Steelݠsector in order to be able to distinguish purely technological effects from the rest of intrasectorial changes.
