As China’s economic development enters a new stage, the government demands the enterprises with high energy consumption and high pollution to save energy and reduce emission. Although the improvement and promotion of the emission trading institutions between enterprises has been proved to be an effective way to control pollution, but only the emission trading theoretical research and practical support can promote China’s environmental protection work in a long term. Using the method of experimental economics with the same market structure, this paper compares and analyzes the features of deal price, transaction volume and market efficiency of enterprises under several different transaction mechanisms, such as double auction, bid auction and offer auction, and provides some reference opinions for the current emission trading market.
