This paper examines the relationship between energy consumption and industrial output for 1978-2006. The study used Ordinary Least Square (OLS) to test the relationship of Energy Consumption by sources to Industrial Output. Results revealed that oil, coal, and geothermal are the sources of energy that significantly affect industrial output. Oil, coal, and geothermal positively affect industrial output at a 5 percent significant level.
