• Study on Low-carbon Transition of Industry Based on "Negative costs" in Guangxi   [MASS 2012]
  • Author(s)
  • Low-carbon transition of industry is the core of the low-carbon economy. In the process of low-carbon economy development, cost is the most important issue for firms. Therefore, studies on the costs of low-carbon transition of industry are imperative. Rational industry policies can contribute to industrial low-carbonization as well as reduce cost of lowcarbon transition. After analyzing the status quo of industry development and energy consumption in Guangxi, the strategy of low-carbon transition of industry based on "negative costs" was proposed from three areas: economic incentives, scientific and technological innovation, and firm productivity and capabilities.
