China’s Shifting Energy Systems: Finding a Balance Between Fossil Fuels and Renewables
China currently sits at an energy crossroads – where they are installing large volumes of renewables into their energy systems while also continuing to grow their coal facilities. And the government’s main message is that coal power is a key way for them to combat the looming energy shortages and curbs on industrial activity, and so “additional funding is needed to ensure coal plants can be used to complement a rising share of renewables.”
This session will see panellists discussing China’s import and production figures to get a sense of supply, demand, and pricing dynamics for commodities domestically. We will also be looking at China’s plans for critical minerals exploration and domestic supply chain strategies, with a view on the role that China’s domestic production will play within their own and the global energy transition.
