“Irregular development among regions is one of the fundamental realities of China, especially in social and economic progress. Moreover, there is no exception in the development of population and energy. In this paper, we explore the characteristics of the seven most prominent patterns of regional population–energy development distribution. Furthermore, analysis is made of problems associated with sustainable population–energy development. The concluding section identifies policy implications for sustainable regional population–energy development.”
