Rural household energy use in China

Sanjay Kaul and Qian Liu

Energy, 1992, vol. 17, issue 4, 405-411

Abstract: We first review the literature on rural household energy consumption. China's household energy consumption is studied, based on a large household-energy survey. The consumption of fuels is determined by income, resource availability, household size, and coal prices. The feasibility of substituting biomass for commercial energy is examined.
