Energy and capital: Substitutes or complements'? Some results for the UK industrial sector

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

This paper investigates the substitutability or complementarity possibilities between capital, labour and energy in the UK industrial sector, with particular attention to the capital-energy relationship. It is found, using the translog-cost-function approach, that capital and labour as well as energy and labour are substitutes. However, capital and energy are found to be complements.
