A Review of Research on Energy-Economy-Environment Systems (3E)

Jiao Cheng, Peng Gao


The development of "economic industrialization and social urbanization" worldwide has led to an unprecedented increase in the use of energy, especially oil and gas resources, in order to promote the economic prosperity of each region. However, the problems of environmental degradation and energy depletion have been exposed, and the fossil energy-based consumption structure has led to frequent occurrence of the greenhouse effect, acid rain and other extreme weather conditions. Therefore, how to harmonize the contradictions between energy development, economic development and environmental protection, many scholars have carried out a lot of analysis and research work on this, in-depth investigation of energy-economy-environmental system (3E) of the law of change. Based on this background, this paper comprehends the current research status of the relationship between energy, environment and economy.
