Potential Analysis of Carbon Emission Reduction of China’s Industrial Sector under the Requirements of Periodic Low Carbon Development

Jian Wang and Zheng-Nan Lu

Abstract— Energy efficiency is used in the traditional DEA method as a reference standard when study the potential of carbon emission reduction. It ignores the fact there are periodic characteristics of the low-carbon development. The estimated emission reduction potential is difficult to fully release in the short term. So it can not be the basis of making the carbon emission reduction targets for China's industrial sector. However, the improved DEA model can freely choose reference to make judges. Therefore, this paper tries to use higher industry sector than any other low-carbon development stage of each industry as the low-carbon development standard, and compares and analyzes the carbon emission reduction potentials under the two methods. The results show that: Firstly, the overall level of low-carbon development of China's industrial sector in 2011 can be divided into five stages. The largest proportion is in the general stage of development of low-carbon industry, accounting for 36.8%; Secondly, the carbon reduction of vast majority of industries is lower under the phase of periodic reductions than the traditional method, the emission reduction decreases 8.1%;Thirdly, key industries of promoting the work of carbon emission reduction is the non-metallic mineral products industry, chemical raw materials, chemical products manufacturing, coal mining and washing industry, the key sectors is the mining industry.

Index Terms— All elements of energy efficiency, carbon emission potential, generalized DEA, periodic characteristic of low-carbon development.
