【报告题目】:Econometrics of energy efficiency and its policy implications in China

 

 

【报告摘要】:

  In recent years, the Chinese government introduced several energy policy instruments to promote energy efficiency. For instance, China has decided to reduce its energy intensity and carbon intensity in its Five-year Plans. However, energy intensity is not an accurate proxy for energy efficiency because changes in energy intensity are a function of changes in several socioeconomic factors. This talk will point out the econometric approaches to distinguish between energy intensity and energy efficiency. Based on the estimations of efficiency indicators, this talk will discuss issues such as how to allocate the national targets at the provincial level, the effectiveness of the heat metering and energy efficiency retrofitting policy on the residential energy consumption in Chinese provinces. The persistence nature of energy efficiency will also be discussed by employing the panel Markov-switching regression.
