We study the in uence of energy endowments on the location of energy-intensive industries. We use data on manufacturing sectors in 50 US states from 2002 until 2008, with detailed information on state endowments of coal, natural gas, oil and hydropower and sectoral fuel and electricity intensities. The effect of energy on industry location is statistically and economically significant. A one standard deviation increase in energy en- dowments per capita increases the activity of energy-intensive industries by about 20%.
