Abstract: Energy is essential to socio-economic development in modern society. China is the largest developing country and the second largest energy producer and consumer in the world, as well as the second largest producer of CO2 emissions after the USA. CO2 emissions in China has become a common focus of academic communities and governments worldwide. Therefore, the study of China's CO2 emissions is not only helpful in terms of fully implementing scientific development, but also significant in working towards the sustainable development of China and mitigating global climate change. Beginning with energy use and CO2 emissions, Energy Economics: CO2 Emissions in China discusses topical issues related to the present CO2 emissions status and its historical evolution. In addition, it analyzes CO2 emission reduction technologies, the CO2 market and CO2 emissions reduction strategies and policies, in the hope of providing a reference resource for decision making in future CO2 emission reduction and climate change resolution strategies and policies in China. The book focuses on several key issues, which are discussed further as below. 1) Energy use and CO2 emissions; 2) Characteristics of energy consumption and CO2 emissions in China; 3) Factors affecting CO2 emissions at different economic development levels; 4) Evolution characteristics of CO2 emissions in CO2-intensive sectors; 5) The analysis of regional CO2 emissions in China; 6) Potential for, and impacts of, CO2 emission reduction technologies; 7) Simulation research on CO2 emission reduction policies; 8) International CO2 trading mechanism and its impact on emission reduction; 9) China's CO2 emissions prospects.
