Abstract
This paper first measures the energy efficiency of 28 provinces from 2001-2009 with DEA model. Different from previous studies that include labor, capital and energy consumption as input indicators, GDP as the only desirable output, this paper also models the undesirable output by introducing environmental pollution index. The result shows that eastern area has highest energy efficiency while the western area has the lowest energy efficiency. The energy efficiency in all areas declined during the whole period and central area shares the highest energy input redundancy ratio. Then the econometric approach with fixed effect model is introduced to analyze the factors influencing energy efficiency. The result indicates that only producer price... (More)

The result indicates that only producer price index (as the proxy to the energy price) has significant effect on the energy efficiency. (Less)
