In this paper, we shall study the relationship between renewable energy, economic growth (GDP), carbon dioxide emissions and with control variable that are estimated into realized volatility and to verify if the EKC hypothesis is accepted or not. This study is focussed on the Algerian situation during the periods of 1995-2016 and we employed the VECM procedure and Granger causality to estimate the short and long-run coefficients. We found with VECM that an increase in carbon dioxide emissions, fossil energy consumption and production will raise the level of economic growth, while an increase in GDP, fossil energy consumption and production will upsurge the level of carbon dioxide emissions, but an increase in renewable energy consumption will reduce both GDP and carbon dioxide emissions. We concluded in the short-term that there’s bidirectional causality between carbon dioxide emissions and GDP and there is unidirectional causality running from renewable energy consumption to carbon dioxide emissions.
