Abstract

The paper modelled both long run and short run effects of government activities on total energy demand in Ghana for the period 1970 to 2011 using Autoregressive Distributed Lag Model (ARDL). The results of the findings indicate significant evidence of cointegration between government activities and total energy demand. The results show that government activities are key explanatory variable in total energy demand. Government activities are recommended as a policy tool to manage energy demand. Further study is worth considering in the area of causality and structural breaks in unit root.
