Abstract: Based on the analysis of the features of economic development and energy consumption, the relationship between them in Jilin was revealed by employing the cointegration theory, index decomposition method and logarithm linear regression method. The result suggests: (1) the economic development and energy consumption are interdetermined, and there is a positive and long-term relationship. The economic development is highly depending on the energy in Jilin Province. (2) Under the condition of other unchanged factors, the change of industrial energy efficiency contributes to the energy saving, while that of industrial structure increases the energy consumption. (3) The industrial structure change enhances the energy intensity, but the energy utility efficiency change lowers it. From the view of contribution to the energy consumption, the contribution of industrial structure to the energy consumption was more than that of the energy utility efficiency in 2000-2011. (4) In 2000-2011, the comprehensive energy intensity change and hydroelectricity energy intensity change were related to all industrial structures' change, and the influencing factors about structure of oil energy intensity change were more than those of coal energy intensity change; from the impact degree, agricultural proportion decrease exerted a positive and greater effect on lowering the energy intensity of comprehensive energy and hydroelectricity, and industrial one did on coal and natural gas.

Key words: energy intensity, energy consumption, industrial structure, energy efficiency, Jilin Province
