China’s Energy Transition

Past Event

December 9, 2021

9:00 am - 10:30 am

China is the world’s largest energy consumer, energy producer and greenhouse gas emitter. Its patterns of energy use have profound impacts on energy markets, geopolitics and the global climate. The Chinese government has committed to dramatic changes in its energy systems in the decades ahead, including an ambitious goal of carbon neutrality by 2060.

How can China meet this ambitious goal? What steps can China take in this decade to transform its energy system while also pursuing other goals, including economic growth and energy security? The Center on Global Energy Policy hosted presentations on two leading analyses of these topics – the China Energy Transformation Outlook, by the Energy Research Institute of the Chinese Academy of Macroeconomic Research (ERI) and the Energy Sector Roadmap to Carbon Neutrality in China, by the International Energy Agency (IEA). Following the presentations, two leading experts offered thoughts and commentary on the analyses.
