Research on Regional Differences and Convergence of Energy Efficiency in China
Basing on the input-output indicators, this paper analysed the regional energy efficiency of China by DEA model. The results showed: the energy efficiency in each region of China continues to be improved, but the rising speed was slow; the difference of energy efficiency in each region was great, specifically speaking, the east was the best and the middle was better and the west was the worst; from the convergence analysis on energy efficiency, it indicated that there was a convergence trend on energy efficiency in each region of China, and the eastern and middle regions were convergence, but it was divergent in the western region.
