Exploring the impact of energy efficiency technologies on firm performance
Marc Pons, Andrea Bikfalvi, Josep Llach Pagès, Iztok Palčič, 2012, published scientific conference contribution

Abstract: The objective of this paper is firstly to map the adoption of the technologies for reduction of energy and resources consumption in production and, second, to verify the relationship between their implementation and the performance of the firm. The aim is also to contribute to the identification and understanding of the characteristics of the manufacturing firms that use this kind of innovative technologies in order to help policy makers to promote this strategic field in a suitable manner. Our suggested models give rise to explain how significant energy efficiency is, and how much of the variability in economic performance and environmental performance indicators can it explain.
Keywords: energy efficiency, economic performance, environmental performance

Analysing energy and material saving technologies' adoption and adopters
Iztok Palčič, Marc Pons, Andrea Bikfalvi, Josep Llach Pagès, Borut Buchmeister, 2013, original scientific article

Abstract: The main objective of this paper is to map the adoption of technologies for energy reduction and resources consumption in production. The aim is also to contribute to the identification and understanding of the characteristics of the manufacturing firms that use these kinds of energy and material saving technologies. Our research is based on data from the largest European manufacturing survey to date and it includes data from Spain and Slovenia. The results show that the use of specific energy saving technologies and material saving technologies in manufacturing firms is still modest. Dividing manufacturing firms based on technology intensity sectors and based on their relative energy efficiency we have concluded that firms in high technology industries focus less on energy efficiency than low technology firms. Some other specific relationships between the use of energy efficient technologies and adopters' characteristics (e. g. use of environmental management systems) are presented in this paper.
Keywords: energy efficiency, manufacturing firms, energy saving technology, material saving technology, European manufacturing survey
