Abstract

This article is a first attempt to measure technical efficiency of the Greek Public Power Corporation, technical efficiency examined within the framework of stochastic production frontiers. The period 1970-’97 is examined and a Cobb-Douglas production function is used. The results demonstrate that the firm’s technical efficiency ranged between 82.5% and 100% and achieved its maximum performance in 1974 and 1992. These estimates are, in general terms, consistent with the findings of other researchers.
