NOWADAYS, EVERYBODY CONFIRMS THE IMPORTANT ROLE OF ENERGY AS WELL AS ITS EFFECT ON ECONOMY. ENERGY HAS BECOME ONE OF THE VITAL FACTORS IN GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT PROCESS. SO, IT IS ESSENTIAL TO INVESTIGATE FACTORS AFFECTING CONSUMPTION AND DEMAND FOR ENERGY. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO MAKE A DECISION ABOUT ECONOMIC PLANNING WITHOUT HAVING A TRUE UNDERSTANDING OF THE PRESENT SITUATION. TO THIS AIM, USING THE ECONOMIC THEORY IS NECESSARY AND THE FIRST STEP IN QUALITY ANALYZING OF BEHAVIOR IN EVERY ECONOMIC SYSTEM IS MAKING A THEORITICAL PATTERN WHICH SHOWS THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SYSTEM IN MATHEMATICAL EQUATIONS. SO, THIS STUDY AIMS AT ESTIMATING THE DEMAND FOR ELECTERICITY IN IRAN OVER THE PERIOD 1971- 2001 USING THE PANEL DATA METHOD. THE USING VARIABLES IN THIS STUDY ARE: TOTAL ELECTRICITY CONSUMPTION, GDP, ELECTERICITY PRICE, NATRURAL GAS PRICE AND POPULATION.
