Green Energy and Economic Growth Influence on Reducing Environmental Degradation: Empirical Evidences from China
Keywords:Green energy, economic growth, inflation, environmental degradation, carbon emission
Recently, environmental degradation has gained global attention due to the high carbon (CO2) emission and needs the researchers and regulators to focus control this global issue. Thus, the current article investigates the impact of green energy and economic growth on environmental degradation in China. The data was extracted from a secondary source like world development indicators (WDI) from 1981 to 2018. The present article has also used the "Augmented Dickey-Fuller" (ADF) test to examine the stationarity and the "Autoregressive Distributed Lag" (ARDL) model to explore the linkage among variables. The results indicated that green energy negatively correlates with environmental degradation and economic growth, and inflation is positively linked with China's environmental degradation. This study guides the relevant authorities to control ecological degradation using green energy.
