The Center on Global Energy Policy and the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law hosted a discussion on Meeting China’s Climate Goals. In November 2014, US President Barack Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping announced an historic agreement to limit greenhouse gas emissions from their two countries. On the eve of President Xi’s visit to the US and summit with President Obama, this event looked at the opportunities and challenges China faces in meeting its climate goals. How can China shift its economy away from coal-fired power generation, improve energy efficiency and increase the share of low carbon energy sources in its economy? How can the US and China work together to promote their shared climate objectives? What role will climate change play at the Obama-Xi summit?
