Low Carbon Economy Development: China’s Road and Policy Choice

  •  Xiangsheng Dou    


The choice of low carbon economy development road is directly related to whether the low carbon economy
development goal can be achieved smoothly and effectively, while its choice theory and economic contents are
very rich. Therefore, it is necessary to explore it from a broader perspective. Only by doing so, can we overall
understand and grasp its profound essences of theory and economic contents, so as to outline a clear roadmap
for low carbon economy development and to provide scientific theory foundations for the policy formulation
and implementation. This paper, from different perspectives including the development methods, tactics, path,
power, means, priorities and so forth, comprehensively and systematically demonstrates the low carbon
economy development road and the economic contents of its choice. The research reveals that, under the
particular context at this stage, China's low carbon economy development must take such a development road,
for example, the combination of the government-led and the market-oriented operation, the combination of the
overall gradual and the partial rapid development, the combination of the balanced development in a long term
and the unbalanced development in a short term, the combination of the exogenous and the endogenous
development, the dual governance of the carbon source and the carbon sink, as well as the industry and the
energy low-carbonization development based on low carbon technology innovation.
