Energy management contracting is a new economic phenomenon, on which no academic research has been conducted so far. How to identify transacting intent effectively in energy management contracting is challenging both to business activities and academic research.In this thesis, we think energy management contracting is the outsourcing contract arrangement for energy service. An theoretical and empirical research on the effect factors pertaining to the transacting intention in energy management contracting is also put up in this thesis.First, the literature on energy management contracting home and abroad is studied. The finding on this research is the shortages in the current research. These shortages are as below.(1) Shortage in formal economic theories to support the related research(2) Shortage in formal tests on hypotheses(3) Shortage in research on the end purchasers’ intents about energy management contractingThen, the research object is set on the effect factors pertaining to the transacting intent in energy management contracting with enterprise resources-based view theory, transacting cost theory, and transacting value analysis theory as the analysis theories, which, together with the modification in the transacting setting, results in the theoretical analysis setup of carrying out research on effect factors pertaining to the transacting intents for energy management contracting with value-creation motivation, value-claiming motivation, and transacting environment.After that, the theoretical hypothesis model is established in two phases. The 1 st phase is to review the impact of the independent variables and the control variables on the dependent variable. This relation is ModelⅠ.The 2nd phase is to set up a number of hypothetical relations between independent relations. The collaborative and mutual impact of independent variables on the dependent variable is then reviewed. This coactive pattern is ModelⅡ.Afterward, a corresponding measurement model is constructed based on literature summaries and extended interviews. Measurement tables for variables are designed. A questionnaire is developed with energy management experts as the interviewees. The questionnaire was executed on 150 enterprises in the manufacturing and hotel industries who demand energy saving.The statistic analysis of data is then presented in different structural equation models after the analysis of reliability and validity, which leads to the effective validation of concerned hypotheses.Finally, the impact of the effect factors on the transacting intent is analyzed, the associated impact matrixes and the countermeasures of EMCo and the government are also put up in this thesis.
