Abstract: This article aimed to research the spatial distribution and operation conditions of the recent low-carbon industrial clusters in China and make suggestions for future development. Location quotient method was used to identify industrial cluster. With this method, the article calculated the location quotients about the quantity of companies and the sales revenues, based on a sample of 138 quoted low-carbon corporations from 24 provinces in China. The conclusion showed that the low-carbon industrial clusters mainly located in the developed cities from 13 provinces in the northeast, central part and the southeast of China. Besides, the sales revenue of the low-carbon industry increased steadily in the past five years, while the profit rate, coupled with its proportion in the national economy as a whole, dropped gradually.
