Abstract

In this chapter we provide an overview of China’s energy system and energy flows. We employ Sankey diagrams to graphically illustrate these flows, and discuss the dynamics of China’s energy system by analysing key influential factors, including economic growth, energy resources, environmental impacts, and energy management. In addition we highlight the differences between China’s provinces using a model that considers not only primary energy flows but also the energy embedded in products and services that flow between these regions.
