With the increasing threat of global climate change to mankind, it has become a global consensus to reduce carbon emissions. Low-carbon energy-saving buildings are energy-saving, environmentally friendly cities and towns marked by low energy consumption, low pollution and low emissions. It is a model that conforms to the development of urbanization with Chinese characteristics under the constraints of ecological environment. Based on the analysis of the development path of low-carbon energy-saving buildings, this paper proposes that low-carbon energy-saving buildings are a process of integrated development from “building energy conservation and green buildings” to “energy conservation and emission reduction” to “low-carbon energy-saving buildings”. The ecological model is an effective method to optimize the scientific development of low-carbon energy-saving buildings. Then the definition, classification, function and construction of ecological models are described. Then, the role of ecological model in the development of low-carbon energy-saving buildings in China is discussed.
