China Energy Group

China Energy Group

The China Energy Group works collaboratively with groups in China and elsewhere to understand the dynamics of energy use in China and strengthen capabilities of Chinese institutions to promote energy efficiency and reduce emissions in China. In addition, it works to enhance relationships on energy efficiency among Chinese, U.S. and international institutions

Current research and projects include:
  • Future Low-Emissions Pathways
  • Low Carbon Urban Development
  • Policies for Low-Carbon Markets
  • Energy System Planning and Grid Integration
  • Low Emission and Efficient Industry
  • Low Emission and Efficient Buildings and Equipment
  • U.S.-China CERC-BEE Program
  • Berkeley-Tsinghua Joint Research Center on Energy and Climate Change
