  • Introduction

    Along with its spectacular economic growth, China has been experiencing rapid growth in energy consumption. China accounted for only 10.5 percent of global energy consumption in 2000 but 21.9 percent in 2012, the largest of any country (BP Statistical Review of World Energy 2013). Given that China's economy is expected to continue to grow rapidly, it is becoming increasingly important for scholars around the world to understand and research China's energy issues and hopefully, to help improve China's energy policies for reducing energy use, and greenhouse gas emissions. Although the total energy consumption grows rapidly in China, the level of energy universal service is in its infancy. Parts of the country, especially in the frontier and minority areas in Tibet, Qinghai, Sichuan, Yunnan, Xinjiang, there are still a number of households cannot connect power. Therefore, in order to increase the level of social welfare, and impel the energy livelihood projects, some policy of electric power universal service (EPUS) should be carried out.

    Above all, in China, on the one hand, the energy consumption should be controlled to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions. On the other hand, the energy should be covered more regions to increase the level of energy universal service

    Aims and Scope:

    (1) Current energy supply and demand issues in China
    (2) Residential energy consumption in China
    (3) Energy consumption forecasting and planning
    (4) Energy conservation and emission reduction
    (5) The relationship between energy and the economy
    (6) Energy universal service
    (7) Energy poverty
    (8) Energy policy and recommendations
