Energy consumption is a main factor for global climate change. It is significant to research energy consumption carbon footprint and ecological stress. We use the energy consumption carbon footprint research model to calculate the energy consumption carbon footprint, ecological capacity and ecological pressure index, and investigate its dynamic evolution and spatial difference. The results show that the energy consumption carbon footprint has a rising trend, from 2242.57 hm2 in 2005 to 2835.23 hm2 in 2010; that the carbon ecological carrying capacity changing trend is small, being around 1880 hm2; and that the ecology environment pressure index has a big spatial difference, with Shaoyang, Yongzhou, Huaihua, Zhangjiajie and Xiangxi belonging to the high-ecological carrying area, Yueyang and Hengyang belonging to the moderate-ecological carrying area, Changsha and Yiyang belonging to the general transition distraction, and Loudi and Xiangtan belonging to the heavy-ecological carrying area.
