Abstract
Based on data of 29 provinces in China for 17 years, this paper investigates the impact of labor transfer on farmers' biomass energy consumption from the national and regional perspectives. The study found that the increase in the number of migrant workers significantly reduced the fuel wood and straw consumption per head in national and western farmers, but decreased the consumption of straw per capita in midland farmers.Moreover,the increase of the ratio of labor force transfer significantly reduced the consumption of fuel wood and straw per head, but decreased the consumption of fuel wood per head in the eastern part of China. Furthermore, the increase of labor migration significantly increased the consumption of methane per head in the western region.
