Energy is one of the primary inputs for the production of goods and services. Higher production
and growth requires energy efficiency improvements. Categorizing provinces into homogenous
industrial clusters, this study evaluates the energy productivity of industrial energy use of Iran
Provinces. Energy efficiency as measured by a non-parametric Data Envelop Analysis model
(DEA) for the period of 1385-1393, is used as a proxy for energy productivity. According to the
results, there are considerable disparities in industrial energy productivity within industrial
provincial clusters. In the cluster consisting of Tehran, Isfahan, and Khuzestan, the highest energy
productivity belongs to Isfahan has and Khuzestan has the lowest energy productivity. Khorasan
Razavi has the lowest energy efficiency in the fourth industrial cluster. Hormozgan has the lowest
energy efficiency in the fifth cluster.
Keywords: Energy efficiency, productivity, Data Envelop Analysis (DEA)
