A Coordinated Energy Supply for China
This study releases a fact that the national energy supply system could extend its spatial bordering as the demands for the fuels, especially oil and gas, increased and the structure of energy supply diversified. It is, therefore, that a coordinated energy supply would be a key issue for national energy security, not only because an uneven distribution of mineral resources of both a country and the whole world but also the changeable environments for national energy supply itself. The case study of Chinese snowstorm in 2008 just proved it, and to say nothing of the recent Japan's nuclear crisis.
