Annual data related to energy\r\nconsumption and value added in the industry sector were used. The\r\nresults of the study revealed a positive relationship between energy\r\nconsumption and value-added of the industry sector. Similarly, the\r\nresults showed that there is one-way causality between energy\r\nconsumption and value-added in the industry sector.","references":"[1] M.H. Fetres, A. Aghazade, and S.
