"Future Scenarios for China's Carbon Emissions"
Presentation at ETIP Seminar Series
July 7, 2008
Author: Jim Watson
Jim Watson, Deputy Director of the Sussex Energy Group at the University of Sussex, U.K., presented progress on a study on "China's Energy Transition," funded by the U.K. Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. The project is assessing alternative energy and carbon emissions futures for China, and aims to inform policy making in both China and the UK.
The presentation included highlights of the project's two main areas:
1. An analysis of China's current emissions and the extent to which they can be attributed to goods that are exported to developed countries.
2. Future emissions scenarios through which the group is exploring the compatibility of current energy & climate policies in China with the long-term need for global limits on emissions.
