China’s energy planners seek to increase production, distribution, and consumption of renewable energy as a means to diversify energy supply. However, as China attempts to transition from coal to other energy sources, it struggles to utilize existing renewable capacity. This inefficiency, caused by overcapacity and grid limitations, has hindered the country’s ability to achieve renewable sector development goals.
Growing public dissatisfaction toward rampant pollution in China is putting pressure on Beijing to craft a national development agenda that more comprehensively takes into account environmental considerations.
Climate change and clean energy issues continue to be a noticeably encouraging point of bilateral cooperation between the US and China.
Facing surmounting challenges, China seeks to revise its environmental trajectory, determined to smoothly and successfully transition from an overdependence on fossil fuels—particularly coal—to an embrace of clean energy.
As China braces for an uncertain economic future, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is furiously ushering in a pro-government campaign that provides the Party a rejuvenated degree of authority. Yet, the most distinct aspect of this movement has been the vivid face of this power reconsolidation campaign—the face of the Party leader himself, Chinese President Xi Jinping.
