Contents:
Tables and Figures; Preface; 1. Introduction; 2. Energy in China's Economy, 1981 and 1987; 3. Accounting for Energy-Use Changes: A Structural Decomposition Analysis; 4. Energy Effects of Final-Demand Shifts; 5. Energy Effects of Production-Technology Changes; 6. Energy Conservation in Action: A Case Study of the Iron and Steel Industry; 7. Summary and Conclusion; Appendices; Bibliography; Index.
Summary: China has reduced the energy intensity of its economy dramatically. This book explores how this reduction was achieved and determines the major sources of energy savings. Using extensive data, the author examines the impacts of technological and structural changes on energy consumption and identifies the factors that were primarily responsible for the energy-efficiency improvements. It is an interesting work that will be useful for policy makers in assessing the energy consequences of development strategies and for economists in analyzing the relationship between energy use and economic growth.
