The new study China Energy Transformation Outlook 2021 (CETO2021) was presented at COP26 on Wednesday November 10. The study presents pathways for China to reach their targets to peak carbon emissions before 2030 and reach carbon neutrality before 2060.
The Chinese Energy Research Institute (ERI) is responsible for the report, which is the result of a cooperation between ERI, the Center for Global Energy Policy at Columbia University, the Danish Energy Agency, and other partners. Ea Energy Analyses has contributed to this work, including supporting the power sector modelling. CETO 2021 marks a new phase in a long running international cooperation on energy policy scenarios and replaces the China Renewable Energy Outlook annual publications (2016-2020).
