Paper Title:
On Carbon Emissions Measure and its Influencing Factors of Yunnan Province: 1998-2008
  Abstract

Coming up with the idea of low-carbon economy, numerous studies both at home and abroad on carbon emissions have emerged, nonetheless of which seldom are studies aiming at specific executive agencies and supervisory authorities of government development plan at provincial administrative area level. This paper, by using calculation formulas in carbon emission calculation guide of IPCC and carbon emission coefficient default value, measured the carbon emissions of Yunnan Province during 1998 and 2008 and analyzed relative influencing factors. The study shows economic growth and industrial restructuring increase the carbon emission intensity which is not remarkably affected by energy restructuring. The key to decrease carbon emission intensity is enhancing energy efficiency.
