There have been mainly five promulgations of environmental economic policies in power industry in China: Environmental protection electricity price subsidy policy, pollution charge and environmental protection tax, preferential tax policy, industrial policy, pollution rights trading and carbon emission right trading. In recent years, environmental economic policies have made great achievements in promoting pollution reduction and industrial structure optimization and upgrading in power industry. However, the environmental economic policies in power industry remain imperfect in the formulation and implementation from a practical point of view. To explore how environmental economic policies further promote environmental protection and green development in power industry, the present situation of environmental economic policies in power industry was combed. As a result, aiming at the problems and challenges facing current power industry, development suggestions for improving environmental economic policies were put forward from four aspects: Environmental protection comprehensive electricity price, environmental protection tax, industrial policy and fully compliant discharge requirement.
