Low Carbon Development and Early Emissions Peaking in Chinese Cities: Case Studies (2018)

In September 2018, the International Technical Supporting Platform for City Emission Peaking (ISP-CEP) released the case studies, with support from all members of the platform, including Energy Foundation China. Through literature reviews and interviews, this report illustrates how eight different Chinese cities try to push forward low carbon development at the local level and aim to peak their emissions early. The cases can provide practical lessons for other cities in China and developing countries around the world, as they explore innovative low carbon solutions that suit them. ISP-CEP was established in 2017 by 11 international non-governmental organizations in China, aiming to help Chinese cities achieve their carbon emissions peaking goals successfully.
