The region matters: A comparative analysis of regional energy efficiency in Spain.

The objective of this work is specifically to investigate the differences between the energy performance of Spanish regions. It intents to calculate the inefficiency levels of Spanish regions as regards their use of various energy sources during the period 2003–2008, by estimating an environmental directional distance function. The results obtained confirm the existence of significant differences in the behaviour and evolution of regional energy efficiency and point to the need to pay more attention to energy planning in this territorial sphere.
