Launch of China Renewable Energy Outlook 2017 at COP23

This week Ea attended the UN Climate Conference, COP23, in Bonn, Germany, to participate in the release of the China Renewable Energy Outlook (CREO) 2017.

The comprehensive report, that spans nearly 700 pages, was released Tuesday November 14th, and is published by China’s National Centre For Renewable Energy, which was established five years ago with the support of the Danish state. Experts from the Danish Energy Agency and Ea Energy Analyses have contributed to the report, as well as other international partners.

In the CREO 2017, projections of current developments (Stated Policies Scenario) are contrasted with a scenario where China takes additional steps in order to ensure CO2 emission reductions in compliance with the Paris agreement (Below 2 °C Scenario).

A key message of the report is that China has already undertaken a number of critical steps in order to increase renewable energy and reduce the reliance on fossil fuels in the energy sector. As a result, CO2 emissions, energy consumption, and coal utilisation are all projected to peak prior to 2030.

However, the Below 2 °C Scenario analysis also reveals that the country’s current energy policies are insufficient if the goals set out under the Paris agreement are to be met, particularly in the short-term, and the report contains recommendations regarding the necessary actions to be undertaken.

Ea Energy Analyses is centrally positioned in the cooperation within the China National Renewable Energy Centre (CNREC) in connection with the project Boosting Renewable Energy as part of China's Energy Revolution and Ea Partner Lars Møllenbach Bregnbæk has been embedded as Chief Modelling Expert in the CNREC since 2015.
