La Chine a connu récemment une hausse de son intensité énergétique après 20 ans de baisse constante. Nous revenons sur les causes de cette évolution en nous intéressant principalement à deux périodes récentes : la période de croissance lente entre 1997 et 2001 qui a connu une baisse de la consommation primaire d'énergie et la période de croissance rapide en cours depuis 2002 qui a conduit à une hausse de l'intensité énergétique. Nous nous intéressons à l'industrie lourde qui explique la majeure partie de cette inversion de tendance et au développement des nouvelles capacités de production dans les secteurs les plus consommateurs d'énergie pour répondre à l'industrialisation et l'urbanisation du pays. On attire ici le lecteur sur le lien entre « localisme » et intensité énergétique.
