Analyses of Impacts of China’s CO2 Emissions Factors Based on STIRPAT Model
According to the fact of coal-based energy consumption in China, the paper especially introduced energy consumption structure, besides the factors of economy, population, energy intensity using the STIRPAT model to analyze the impacts of CO2 emissions factors. The results show that economy, population and urbanization level have positive effects on CO2 emissions, on the other hand energy intensity and energy consumption structure have negative effects. At the same time, the factors’ contribution were calculated, which had different values, the highest is the economy. Considering the fact that economy and the urbanization develop fast, more energy saving technology and clean energy technology must be applied to save fossil fuels and reduce the CO2 emission.
