This paper analyses the changes in the amount of carbon in GHG emissions from China' energy consumption between 1994 and 2008 with LMDI techniques to examine the economic factors that determine carbon emissions. The results show that the changes of economic scale, population, the number of households, and the urban-rural dual structure tend to increase carbon emissions; the changes of the sub-industrial structure are the most significant in the three structural effects; technological and lifestyle changes are confirmed as the dominant contributor to the decline in carbon emissions.
