From energy economics, we know the nexus between economic growth and energy consumption and from urban economics, we get the nexus between urbanization and economic growth. In this study, we amalgamate this two theory and try to investigate the dynamic relationships among urbanization, economic growth, and energy consumption in the context of Bangladesh. Times series data of Bangladesh are taken from World Development Indicator 2017 over the period of 1973-2014. Augmented Dickey-Fuller test is used to check the unit root problem and ARDL bounds test approach has been employed for empirical analysis.
