ABSTRACT
In order to explore effective ways for energy conservation and emission reduction, seven correlated variables are selected in this paper according to the government statistics with the extended STIRPAT model, and the impact of China’s industrialization and urbanization on carbon emission intensity of energy consumption is studied. The study found that urbanization rate and urban population employment rate are the main factors affecting per capita carbon emission of energy consumption in China;the industrialization has a reverse impact on per capita carbon emission of energy consumption, indicating that China’s industrialization is relatively low and is not the main factor affecting per capita carbon emission of energy consumption; the service industry added value rate and the agricultural industry added value rate also have reverse effects on China’s per capita carbon emission of energy consumption, and the degree of impact is relatively small. Therefore, China is supposed to develop industry vigorously in the future, to appropriately control the development speed of urbanization and to increase the agricultural industry added value rate moderately, so as to achieve effective control of per capita carbon emission intensity of energy consumption.
