Research on the Regional Low-Carbon Industrial Development: A Case of Tianjin Binhai New Area
Energy consumption induced by industry sector is the main source of carbon emission. So it is important to the policy making that research on the low-carbon industrial development, which is aiming to establish an industry system with low-carbon character. There are four restrictive factors on low-carbon industrial development in Tianjin Binhai New Area of China: the rather large scale of the secondary industry, the heavy industrial structure which strongly caused the increasing energy consumption, the high-carbon energy structure of industrial sector, and the lower industrial energy efficiency which has certain gap compared with other regions. Several countermeasures are proposed to reduce carbon emission induced by industrial sector, such as improving energy efficiency, optimizing energy structure, establishing multiple-access financing mechanism to encourage R&D on low-carbon technology, enhancing the development of low carbon industry, participating in the international cooperation actively, and making strategic plan of low-carbon industrial development.
