We investigate the relationship between electricity consumption and economic growth for four regions in China. The empirical results show that there are cointegration relationships and short-run bidirectional causality for the four regions. Over the long-run, there is bidirectional in the west, there is unidirectional causality running from economic growth to electricity consumption for the coastal region, whilst there is unidirectional cau-sality running from electricity consump-tion to economic growth for the northeast and central area. The panel FMOLS esti-mates also support these results. This can provide a policy-making of demand fore-casts and investment orientation in the short and long term.
