Abstract

This paper conducted quantitative study on China's sustainable energy strategies by using the econometric method. GDP growth will be over 6% annually between 2005 and 2030. The continuation of rapid economic growth could result in a lot of difficulties for energy security, environment protection, and CO2 emissions reductions. For the sustainable development, more comprehensive strategies should be adopted, including improvement in energy efficiency with highest priority, enhancing development of renewable energy and promoting structural adjustment in transport sector, etc. At the same time, international cooperation such as establishing Asia Energy and Environment Agency towards Asia Community is also an important strategic option.
