Low Carbon Cities in China: National Policies and City Action Factsheets

China has also initiated 42 low carbon pilots, including 6 provinces and 36 cities, which represent various geographic locations, resource endowments, economic growth patterns, industrial mixes, and energy-use behaviors. These pilots have developed and implemented many policies, programs, and measures to achieve low carbon development paths at the provincial and municipal levels in the long term. Factsheets in this document are based on analyzing actions in 10 cities out of the 42 low carbon pilots.

Real-World and Certified Fuel Consumption Gap Analysis

This report attempts to flash out actual and certified FC gaps in China based on official FC certified data available and voluntary actual FC data collected from drivers across China through BearOil App and to suggest and assess reasons for causing the gap (e.g. by model and by location).

A proposal of China's ZEV program design

This brief is meant to inspire Chinese EV stakeholders to converse on the topic of ZEV program design and action plan for China. A former iCET report described the California ZEV program, evaluated its effectiveness through qualitative and quantitative research, and studied its history and inception process. This former work was introduced to national and local stakeholders in China, including the government, academic, and private sectors through workshops, round tables, and meetings. The process of stakeholders’ engagement was important on its own, as it unveiled concerns and challenges facing a China-tailored program.

CHINA 2050 HIGH RENEWABLE ENERGY PENETRATION SCENARIO AND ROADMAP STUDY

As the world's largest developing country, coal consumer, and green house gas emitter, China is confronted with challenges that are more urgent and arduous as its transforms toward a clean and low-carbon energy system. The China 2050 High Renewable Energy Penetration Scenario and Roadmap Study set out to analyze the technical and economic feasibility of having high renewable energy penetration by 2050 based on economic, environment, and carbon emission constraints, and backcast the policies and programs needed at different points in time to make this a reality.

10 Key Principles for Local Air Quality Management

As China’s government moves to more assertively reduce air pollution, Energy Foundation China and its partners Clean Air Alliance of China, ClimateWorks, and the Regulatory Assistance Project have compiled a list of 10 key principles for sound air quality management. These principles are offered to China’s local governments to assist them in meeting their increasingly demanding air quality improvement targets. They can also help reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) – an environmental issue that China is also now taking stronger actions on. These principles help reduce air pollution and GHGs at the same time, bringing synergy and cost-effectiveness to air quality and climate policy.

ZEV credits regulation and cap and trade program

This project is aimed at evaluating recent innovative schemes for incentivizing sustainable vehicle and fuel production and financing clean transportation technology development through the industry players themselves. The first, the California Zero Emissions Vehicles (ZEV) credit scheme, is unique program that evolved over a twenty year period and was able to drive local low-emissions vehicle innovations through a mandate combined with market-based implementation mechanism. The second is a recent Cap-andTrade scheme aimed at incentivizing energy and fuel supply through market forces. The two programs, although not officially linked, are both serving similar air-quality improvement and fuel and GHG emissions reduction targets under the state’s scoping plan for better air quality and later on - reduced GHG emissions. After outlining these programs’ development and evaluating their success, this report will highlight the potential and impediments for similar programs design for implementation in Chinese cities.
