Abstract
With the rapid development of economy, the contradiction between energy supply and demand is increasing. Energy shortage has seriously restricted the healthy development of China's economy. Research on energy consumption is of great significance to build a resource-saving society and promote the sustainable development of economy. According to the Hebei Province industrial structure and energy consumption status, this paper decomposes the energy consumption intensity into structure share and efficiency share, and analyzes the effect of industrial restructuring and energy efficiency on the overall energy consumption intensity. The empirical results show that the energy consumption intensity of Hebei province is declining in the research period, which is the result of energy efficiency improvement and industrial structure adjustment in different industries. The biggest influencing factor is the efficiency share, especially the improvement of energy utilization rate of the second industry. The effect of structural share on energy consumption is small compared to efficiency share. The decreasing of second industrial energy consumption intensity is the main reason for the decline in the overall energy from the point of the structure share and efficiency share. Finally, this paper puts forward the ways to reduce the energy consumption from the industrial structure adjustment and other dimensions.
