Analysis of Energy Consumption Influence Factors in Japan Based on LMDI Model
After World War Ⅱ Japanese economy has undergone three periods: the rapid industrialization period, the industrial structure adjustment period and the economy depression period. Affected by the speed of economic development, industrial structure and other factors, Japanese energy consumption has shown different features during specific period of time. This article use the LMDI model, analyze the effect of different factors on Japanese energy consumption which include economic development, energy intensity, energy consumption structure and population size, research on the weight of specific factors during each developing period. The results show that all the factors show positive effect in the rapid industrialization period; in the industrial structure adjustment period, economic development factor shows positive effect while energy consumed factor shows negative; and in the depression period, the trend of all the factors contribution rate are slowly, economic development and energy consumption structure also show negative effect besides the energy intensity factor.
