Abstract

The power sector accounts for about 41% of China's total carbon emissions from the energy sector, with thermal power being the main source of carbon emissions. The two-carbon target requires energy and power companies to follow a methodical approach to accelerate the diversification of energy supplies and clean, low-carbon, efficient reduction of energy use and electrification. Therefore, it is extremely important to develop a model to monitor and evaluate the carbon reduction process in the power sector. This paper constructs the monitoring index system of carbon emission reduction process in China's power industry from five dimensions: market, technology, social economy, power production and consumption. It then used a fuzzy comprehensive evaluation method to thoroughly assess the overall carbon reduction process across all five systems and the power sector. The results show that the carbon emission reduction process of China's power industry has improved steadily. After 2010, driven by the adjustment of the economic and energy consumption structure and the improvement of energy utilization efficiency, the overall performance of carbon emission reduction in the power industry has gradually improved from a poor level.
