Analysis of Carbon Footprint Based on Energy Utilization in Hubei Province
Abstract: This paper analyzes carbon footprint based on energy utilization in Hubei Province adopting both qualitative and quantitative methods, and draws the following conclusions: 1) The carbon emissions showed a tendency to increase year by year in Hubei Province. The carbon emissions of coal occupied the largest proportion, followed by oil, with natural gas bringing up the rear in the three main fossil fuels, while the proportion of carbon emissions generated by biomass energy utilization presented a fluctuating downward trend. 2) The carbon footprint of Hubei’s total energy use appeared a rising trend in fluctuation, accounting for 0.243 hm2/cap in 2010, with 0.149 hm2/cap more than that of 1990. The carbon footprint density was growing rapidly, which had reached 566.20 t/km2 in 2010, almost three times of the amount in 1990. 3) While the economic value created by carbon footprint per unit energy utilization had been growing unceasingly, intensity of carbon footprint on energy use, namely energy consumption per unit GDP, had been declining constantly. That is, the benefits of energy use had been further improving continuously. 4) The calculated results of Ecological Pressure Intensity of Carbon Footprint (EPICF) indicated that the pressure on natural ecosystem caused by fast-growing economy was increasing. 5) There were significant differences between carbon footprint of various re-gions in Hubei Province, each of which was increasing in 2005-2010, and carbon footprint of major areas will be further enhanced with the rapid development of economy in Hubei. It is larger than any other district of Hubei province that whether carbon emissions or carbon footprint in Wuhan city.
