Abstract: The purpose of this study is to show the performance of the Central Government in the new energy industry, and to analyze the effect of Central Government’s new energy documents. The essay intends to sum up almost new energy policies from the Central Government. The present study counts the total number of new energy policies, analyzes the distribution frequency of the new energy policies in the national institutions, and sorts out the purpose of the implementation of those new energy policies in order to understand the focus of the Central Government. Meanwhile, using a questionnaire, this essay collects data on evaluation of the public’s satisfaction with the new energy policy and the effect of the implementation of the new energy policy. So, based on a large amount of materials, the authors discuss about China how to promote the application of Central Government policies in this field are benefit to enrich the research materials of this field.
