Study on Supply and Demand of Cooking and Heating Energy in Rural Areas of Northern China
Y. Yuan and J. Zhao

In China, rural residential energy consumption is affected by economic and social factors. Cooking and heating are the essential energy-using activities for the living in northern China and contributes most of the energy consumed in northern rural households. In this study based on data of rural energy consumption in 15 northern regions, some indices of energy supply and demand of rural cooking and heating are calculated. Results show that in northern rural households, fossil energy plays an important role in cooking and heating and the annual heat amount demanded for house-heating is always larger than for cooking. However, the energy-using efficiencies of rural heating and cooking need to be improved. For the comparison of provincial administratives, Beijing, Xinjiang and Shanxi are at the higher level of rural annual per capita energy-using while rural households in northeastern regions use more renewable energy (mainly crop residue) than other regions.
