A Decomposition Analysis of Developing Low-Carbon Economy in Dalian Industry Sector
In this paper, we utilize Logarithmic Mean Divisia Index (LMDI) techniques to decompose different components —CO2 emission factor, industrial energy mix, industrial energy intensity, industrial-scale structure, industrial structure, economic activity, family size and family households—which contribute to the changes in CO2 emissions in Dalian industry sector based on industry economy and CO2 emissions data in Dalian from 2000 to 2009. The results show that the economic activity was the main component for CO2 emissions increase, and energy intensity was the most favorable component in developing low-carbon economy in Dalian industry sector, and optimize energy mix could contribute to a significant reduction in CO2 emissions.
