Research on Energy-Saving Awareness, Energy-Saving Policies and Sustainable Development in China
Increasing public awareness of energy-saving by energy policy is an important way of achieving sustainable development. This paper establishes indicator system to measure the energy-saving awareness of Chinese residents, uses the multiple linear regression method to analyze which energy-saving policy would affect the energy-saving awareness most significantly and finally gets the conclusion that the policies of making laws, conducting propaganda and improving the residents’ education level has a significant impact on raising the awareness of energy-saving, and the policies of increasing price of energy resource, offering energy subsidies, and restricting energy supply can hardly raise people’s awareness of energy-saving.
