Part of the Lecture Notes in Energy book series (LNEN, volume 13)


Having investigated China’s energy situation in the new millennium and reviewed the literature on China’s energy economy in previous chapters, the remaining chapters address two topics which represent the main new results and the major novel aspects of this study.


Unit Root Energy Intensity Unit Root Test Panel Unit Root Test Panel Cointegration
