Abstract [en]

In this study, data envelopment analysis (DEA) is employed to analysis the trendsin energy efficiency in the Colombian manufacturing industries taking as reference energy intensive sectors (EISs).The results of theDEAindicate that the great majority ofEISs improved on this index, demonstrating that energy input is an important variable within the production structure and a key element in technology development.At a second stage, regression analysis using panel data analysis reveals that several factors, including labour productive, enterprise size, investments and capital input can be considered determinants in the trends of energyefficiency. These results indicate that different energy policies should apply in the manufacturing industries to encourage the importance of energy efficiencythrough technology changes and investments in order to improve productivity, decrease energy consumption and pollution.
