Abstract
It is of great significance for easing China's energy security and reduce environmental pollution to promoting the optimization of rural energy consumption structure and renewable energy use. Using the relative data of the survey, this study applies the Tobit regression model to analyze the impact of migrant workers’ migrant workers on rural household energy consumption, the results show that the increase of migrant workers’ income has significantly promoted rural household energy consumption of liquefied gas and electricity consumption and reduce the consumption of biomass energy. In addition, the basic characteristics of the family, the family economic characteristics, consumer preferences and regional factors are important factors that effect on rural household energy consumption.
