Abstract: In this paper, using the Solow production function model, the relationship between energy prices and energy intensity is constructed. Then we use the 1990-2008 time series data of the national and Jiangsu Province to assess the impacts of the relative price of energy to energy intensity. We put the technological progress containing time parameter as a single parameter to consider. The results show that, in recent years, the decline in energy intensity of Jiangsu Province is obvious. However, the rise of the relative price of aggregate energy in Jiangsu Province for the reduction of energy intensity is not optimistic, the rise of the price of electricity has a certain role in it.

Key words: energy intensity, energy price, Solow production function, tariff
