Scenario Analysis of Carbon Emissions of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei
AbstractThis paper utilizes the generalized Fisher index (GFI) to decompose the factors of carbon emission and exploits improved particle swarm optimization-back propagation (IPSO-BP) neural network modelling to predict the primary energy consumption CO2 emissions in different scenarios of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region. The results show that (1) the main factors that affect the region are economic factors, followed by population size. On the contrary, the factors that mainly inhibit the carbon emissions are energy structure and energy intensity. (2) The peak year of carbon emission changes with the different scenarios. In a low carbon scenario, the carbon emission will have a decline stage between 2015 and 2018, then the carbon emission will be in the ascending phase during 2019–2030. In basic and high carbon scenarios, the carbon emission will peak in 2025 and 2028, respectively. View Full-Text
