The objective of this paper consists of analyzing sustained economic growth in African countries and the role of energy consumption. We have three main results that were generated from this work. First, we explain how energy consumption can achieve strong economic growth in African nations. Second, we show energy consumption as a factor of growth in a model of endogenous growth. Finally, using a non-stationary panel model for a sample of 22 African countries covering the period 1980 through 2009, we confirm the positive and statistically significant effect of energy consumption on economic growth. (The 22 African countries in this analysis are Algeria, Benin, Botswana, Cameron, Congo, Congo Democratic Republic, Côte d’Ivoire, Egypt, Ethiopia, Gabon, Ghana, Kenya, Libya, Morocco, Mozambique, Senegal, South Africa, Sudan, Tanzania, Togo, Tunisia, and Zambia.) This article was published in the Journal of Energy and Development as Mohamed Ben Amar, “Energy Consumption and Economic Growth: The Case of African Countries,” The Journal of Energy and Development, volume 38, number 1 (autumn 2012, copyright 2013), pp. 65–78.
