Analysis on Influencing Factors of Primary Energy Consumption in China
Download as PDF
The primary energy consumption is decomposed into five factors: energy structure effect, energy intensity effect, economic structure effect, economic effect and population effect by combining Kaya identical equation and logarithmic mean divisia index model (LMDI), and the development of energy intensity is the key factor to reduce the primary energy consumption. Therefore, the STIRPAT model is further used to analyze the impact of eight factors on improving energy efficiency, such as employed population, coal structure, oil structure, natural gas structure, hydropower structure, per capita GDP, economic structure and investment in the fixed assets.
