Abstract

This contradiction caused by differences in coal-electricity industry market forces is “market for coal, plans for electricity". The traditional coal and power enterprises cause serious pollution problems and ecological problems in the production process, restricting the sustainable socio-economic development. The coal-electricity industry cluster ecosystem forms may effectively mediate organizations conflict existing in the development of industrial clusters, improving resource utilization, reducing energy consumption, to achieve harmony with the natural environment. This paper combines with the theory of industrial ecology, with the Lotka-Volterra model, to explore co-evolution mechanism of coal–electricity industry cluster at the micro, meso and macro levels. In the end, this paper adapted the "Henon mapping" method to describe the chaos phenomenon existed in the development. This paper put forward specific development model for industrial clusters in lower, steady and advanced stages. The co-evolution coal-electricity industry cluster ecosystem is a good solution to numerous conflicts.
