These years residential energy consumption has been increasing sharply in China along with the high economic growth. Thus people pay much more attention to the issues of reducing the energy consumption and CO 2 emission. This study chose Shanghai, a big city of China as a subject, and developed a Macro-model to forecast the CO 2 emission of residential buildings up to 2050. By combining such Global warming count measures into the Macro-model it was able to forecast the CO 2 emission of Shanghai's residential buildings in several energy-efficient scenarios.
