An analysis of the costs of energy saving and CO 2 mitigation in rural households in China

Households may imperfectly implement energy saving measures. This study identifies two factors resulting in imperfect use of energy-saving technology by households. Households often continue to use old technologies alongside new ones, and the energy-saving technologies have shorter actual lifetimes than their designed lifetimes. These two factors are considered when computing marginal energy conservation cost and marginal CO₂ abatement cost using data collected from a survey of rural households...[Show more]
