This paper collates the respected study of renewable resources industry and measures,applying DEA,the technical efficiency of the renewable resource industry in 17 provinces and cities of China in the past 2010-2015 years.Furthermore,the Tobit regression model is applied to analyze the external factors that influence the pure technical efficiency and the scale efficiency of renewable resources industry.The results show that for pure technical efficiency, renewable resources industry of provinces in Middle East region has the advantage, while,the Midwest provinces’ performed better than the eastern provinces’ in scale efficiency; Pure technical efficiency is positively related to the development of the industry and the service sector,in the contrast,there is no positive impact on it concerning about factors of the development of regional economy, the level of opening up, the level of technological innovation and the level of education;Scale efficiency is positively affected by the regional economic development, the level of opening up,the level of technological innovation,while the level of education, the level of industrial development and the development of the service sector has negative impact on it.
