ABSTRACT
Energy crisis is receiving attention with regard to the global economy and environmental sustainable development. Developing new energy resources to optimize the energy supply structure has become an important measure to prevent energy shortage as well as achieving energy conservation and emission reduction in China. This study proposed the concept of energy agriculture and constructed an energy agricultural technical support system based on the analysis of energy supply and demand and China's foreign dependence on energy resources, combined with the function of agriculture in the energy field. Manufacturing technology equipment and agricultural and forestry energy, including crop or forestry plants and animal feces, were used in the system. The current status and future potential of China's marginal land resources, energy crop germplasm resources, and agricultural and forestry waste energy-oriented resources were analyzed. Developing the function of traditional agriculture in food production may promote China's social, economic, and environmental sustainable development and achieve energy saving and emission reduction.

Mentions: Among all the provinces and cities in China, Guangxi, Heilongjiang, and Henan were the top producers of crop straw. Xizang, followed by Shanghai and Qinghai, produced the lowest quantity of crop straw. Sichuan ranked first in terms of livestock manure emission, followed by Henan and Hunan. Shanghai, behind Beijing and Tianjin, was the lowest in the rank. Given these data, Sichuan ranked first in agricultural waste potential, and its total quantity of agricultural waste was 437.88 million tons, accounting for 8.8% of the whole country, followed by Henan and Shandong, accounting for 8.4% and 6.1%, respectively. Shanghai ranked last in resource potential because its quantity of agricultural waste was 11.26 million tons, accounting for 0.23%, followed by Beijing and Tianjin with 0.32% and 0.38%, respectively (Figure 4) [31, 44].

Developing new energy resources to optimize the energy supply structure has become an important measure to prevent energy shortage as well as achieving energy conservation and emission reduction in China. This study proposed the concept of energy agriculture and constructed an energy agricultural technical support system based on the analysis of energy supply and demand and China's foreign dependence on energy resources, combined with the function of agriculture in the energy field. Manufacturing technology equipment and agricultural and forestry energy, including crop or forestry plants and animal feces, were used in the system.
