Based on the relative data and materials, the energy flowchart of Sichuan province in 2008 was drew at first, then the energy input, output, consumption, corresponding pollutants emission of Sichuan province from 2000 to 2008 were analysed simultaneously. The results show that the total energy consumption reaches up to about 15144.96 tons of standard coal in 2008, the average annual growth rate is 8.42%. Coal and non-fossil energy consumption accounts for 65.35% and 8.44% of total energy consumption respectively. SO2 emissions decreases by an average annual rate of 4.03% since 2005, but NOX and CO2 emissions increases with average annual growth rate of 6.58% and 8.37% respectively. In addition, the energy consumption and pollutants emission of Sichuan province during "the 12th Five-Year Plan" are predicted and analysed within different scenario, then the development plan is proposed. Finally, suggestions of energy conservation and emission reduction in Sichuan province are proposed.
