ABSTRACT
SINO Carbon Intensity Index is an index system which is expressed as the carbon dioxide emission per GDP. The index can reflect the changes on carbon emission intensity in different administrative regions in time series. This paper discusses the factors of carbon emission intensity of Shanghai from 2005 to 2011, based on industrial structure, energy intensity, energy structure and policy & economic environment. The result shows that the energy-saving target and low-carbon policy of Shanghai promoted the energy restructuring, the optimization of industrial structure and the decreasing of energy intensity; and then pushed forward the declining of carbon emission intensity of Shanghai and Xsh,y in recent years. Major economic events and activities, such as the economic crisis, "4 Trillion Yuan Economic Stimulus Plan" and Expo 2010 Shanghai China, etc., were the independent external factors that influenced the Xsh,y obviously.
