In order to classify regional types of rural household energy consumption (RHEC) in China, this paper selects the following as the characteristic indices for regional classification: per-capita available heat consumption for cooking and heating per day (PCAHC), annual per-capita electricity consumption for livelihood (PCEC), ratio of commercial energy in PCAHC (RCE), per-capita energy consumption of coal equivalent (PCECOCE), per-capita commercial energy consumption (PCCEC), per-capita income (PCI) and average annual temperature (AAT), etc. By using cluster analysis, this thesis divides the surveyed regions into five different types, according to the similarities of their characteristic indices made out through analysing national statistical data of rural household energy consumption; it also describes the main characteristics of each region, which provides a reference for rural energy policy-making and research on regional differences.
