Abstract
The output value of high energy-consuming industries is the main source of economic growth in various provinces. The economic growth of high-energy-consuming industries is slowing down under environmental regulations. Appropriate relaxation of environmental regulations by the government can significantly increase the output of high-energy-consuming industries in the region and accelerate economic growth. At the same time, the government faces the dilemma of environmental pollution. This paper studies the impact of environmental regulation on the competitiveness of high-energy-consuming industries in Zhejiang Province under low-carbon economy based on the panel data of high energy-consuming industries in Zhejiang Province from 2012 to 2016. It focuses on the research of heavy chemical, pharmaceutical, chemical fiber, and plastic industries. The relationship between the treatment of pollutant emissions and economic growth shows that environmental regulation can inhibit pollution, but there are differences in the effects of different industries and different pollutants. The discharge of pollutants is positively related to economic growth. The relationship proposes countermeasures for the differential regulation of pollutants produced by different industries.
