Abstract: It is widely accepted the lifeblood of urban economyand growth is energy. Urban transport,infrastructure, industry, and dwellings dominate energy consumption inthe built environment. Nevertheless, energy efficiency in urban growth is a keyfactor that is widely questioned and little understood. As a result, this paperaims to question challenging matters of urban growth and energy by reviewingChina’s recent transition in urban energy demand. This study offers a better understandingof urban energy management and energy demandsof rapidly urbanizing countries, by using China as a leading example. Since the 1980s, after the unprecedented rapidurbanization and growth in China, there are major goals to tackle theemerging matters of urban energy management and growing energy demands. Thesenational-level challenges are imposing serious threats to how cities grow andare managed in the coming decade or so. In light of this, and the face of rapidurbanization and urban growth, this paper investigates China’s current trendsof urban energy management and energy demands. Finally, this paper explorescurrent approaches to urban development inChina and will offer an overview of China’s requirement to tackle its current energy challenges. Thefindings of this study are highlighted as part of a brief review ofChina’s recent five-year-plans and are then developed further in the light ofwhat energy targets mean for cities and urban management.
