Boosting renewable energy as part of China’s energy system revolution
China – East Asia
To support China's National Energy Administration by providing scientifically-sound, evidence-based recommendations for a low-carbon power sector.
$16,599,000 Multi-Year Grant Value
$671,000 evaluation budget
Danish Energy Administration -
National Renewable Energy Laboratory -
Energy Research Institute
The programme will develop:
- Comprehensive energy scenarios for a “Beautiful China” (i.e. economic development with a healthy environment and low pollution)
- Grid plans that are renewable energy-friendly and increase power system flexibility
- A blueprint for transition to a low-carbon energy system without compromising economic development
The investment is designed to maximise the likelihood of development of a renewable energy-friendly grid that sets the pathway for a full decarbonisation of China's power system.
This accounts for between 880 and 1,625 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent of annual mitigation potential in 2030.
