Strategic Path for Developing China’s Low-Carbon Energy

Zuojun WANG

Abstract


Low-carbon economy influences all aspects of a country. Therefore, every country must faces up to low-carbon economy actively, not excepting China. It is universally acknowledged that low-carbon economy is based on the perfect energy system. However, in general, China’s energy situation is now facing a grim situation. On the base of energy situation analysis, this paper considers that the perfect energy system is the foundation of China’s low-carbon economy, energy conservation and energy efficiency improvement are the most effective ways to develop low-carbon economy in China, development and application of new and renewable energies is the key of optimizing energy structure and raising energy reserves, furthermore proposes the safeguard system and incentive mechanisms of new energy industries. Finally, this paper constructs a systematic framework of China’s renewable energy development. Only by speeding up these steps consistently can renewable energy be successful in China.
