Abstract

Bioenergy policy research in China —— Based on the content analysis method

Author(s): Ding Meng, Chen Kai, Liu Tengfei

The development of bioenergy industry is vital for the economy development and energy safety in China. In recent years, Chinese government has produced a series of policies and regulations to promote the bioenergy industry, but the relevant research was limited and most existing literatures focused on policies’ contents by ways of qualitative or subjective analysis. So, more objective and reliable results are needed in reviewing whether issued policies were suitable for practice and guiding future policymaking. In this paper, quantitative and objective content analysis method was used, and all conclusions were drawn by statistical results of 454 Chinese authoritative bioenergy policies. Accordingly, three main problems were found: excessive number of integrated regulations and plans, inadequate technical assistance and uncoordinated policymaking among ministries. Finally, suggestions were put forward for the bioenergy policies in China
