Abstract
Based on the characteristics of energy use and economic growth in Beijing, we analyzed the carbon emission of energy consumption from 2005-2015 by the Logarithmic Mean Divisia Index method (LMDI). The results show that Beijing's carbon emission of energy consumption had an 'inverted-W' shape during 2005-2015, the general trend of carbon emission was to rise first and then fall. The reasons were the follows. The economic scale effect was the leading factor for the increase of carbon emission in the first five years, with a contribution rate of 735.9%. However, the energy intensity effect was the main driver of carbon emission suppression in the followed five years, with a contribution rate of 285.7%. Therefore, some suggestions on the future control of carbon emission in Beijing's long-term development were put forward in the end.
