Abstract

In this studs based on the Chinese statistics, the unit energy consumption and CO2 emissions per household were made clear for urban houses in China. The main conclusions are: (1) Energy consumption per urban household increases from 12.3 GJ to 23.1GJ in the period of 2002-2012. The percentage of each kind of energy was clarified (2) The emissions of CO2 per urban household increases from 1,689 kgCO2 to 3,559 kgCO2 in the period of 2002-2012. The weight of CO2 emissions caused by different energy resources was made clear (3) Energy consumption and CO2 emissions per household in the capital cities is 1.44-fold and 1.42-fold of the average, respectively.
