Following the IPCC guidelines (2006), the total carbon emissions (2005-2009) from energy consumption and the carbon emissions in three sectors (primary industry, secondary industry and tertiary industry) in Beijing were estimated. Results show that (1) the carbon intensity decreased year by year, and (2) the total carbon emissions and carbon emissions per capita tended to fall down when they reached to the highpoints in 2007. In order to find the path of carbon emissions reduction in the future, present paper introduced and estimated the factors (industrial structure, energy structure and energy efficiency) which had impact on the carbon emissions of Beijing.
