Different urbanization development modes have significant impacts on urban carbon emissions. Taking Shijiazhuang city as an example, based on the statistical data over the years and the field research data, the scenario analysis method was used to quantitatively calculate the carbon emissions under different urbanization modes. The results show that under different urbanization modes, Shijiazhuang energy consumption and carbon emissions will exist significant difference. Under the low-carbon urbanization mode, the urbanization rate will also increase by 18.7% from 2015 to 2030, but the average annual growth rate of carbon emissions will fall from 4.3% to 0.4% compared with the current relatively high-carbon urbanization mode, and the carbon emission reductions effect is very significant.

Key words: Urbanization mode, Low-carbon development, Carbon emissions, Correlation
