Energy reduction and emission control are the important content in the low-carbon economy development, in which improving energy efficiency concerns the interests of all the socio-economic parties. So the article explored the role of the social economy entities, and the studies suggest that (1) Improving energy efficiency eventually relies on technology; (2) Social economic entities, including government, enterprises, market and so on are the subjects to enhance the energy efficiency; (3) The role of the social economy entities is embodied by the respective technical behavior; (4) Empirical analysis shows that: the role of Chinese government has not yet to be directly displayed and an in-depth decomposition of technical policies of the government and their roles need to be conducted; (5) the promoting role of the market public will and of the enterprises' initiative can not be ignored, and the role of their technologies is significant to enhance energy efficiency; It is worthy of a further distinctive analysis on the role of technical behaviors of the various types of entities in promoting energy efficiency.
