Abstract

We examine the convergence of energy consumption per capita at the sector level in Australia over the period 1973–74 to 2013–14. To do so, we employ recently developed LM and RALS-LM unit root tests that accommodate up to two endogenously determined structural breaks. We find support for energy consumption per capita convergence for six of seven sectors in Australia.
