Abstract
Energy system is the largest source of carbon emissions in a country or region. Since China's economic increases rapidly these years, it also brings the growth of energy consumption and carbon emissions. This paper indicates an index decomposition analysis to evaluate the carbon emissions from industrial energy activities of China. From the results, we can conclude that the economic growth cycle fluctuation and the increase of industrial production is the major reason for the rapid increase in carbon emissions.
