World Energy China Outlook
The CSIS Energy and National Security Program hosted Xiaojie Xu, head of the World Energy Division at the Institute of World Economics and Politics, part of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences in Beijing, to present the World Energy China Outlook. The outlook, an annual report, examines world energy trends from China's perspective, addresses energy development in China (and the global repercussions thereof), and provides energy policy recommendations for the Chinese government. This year's outlook addresses a variety of topics including unconventional gas production in China, renewable energy development, and the increasing need for a 'social license' for energy projects.
