Urban Renewal Planning in the Jiangsu Province

In 2017, Energy Foundation China supported the Urbanization and Urban-Rural Planning Research Center of Jiangsu to study on urban renewal planning in the province. In this report, researchers propose a planning methodology to guide systematic urban renewal and try to improve its policy analysis and planning guidelines based on Jiangsu’s current policy framework. The goal is to guide an orderly and gradual renewal in cities across the province. The research helps promote urban renewal planning and practice in Jiangsu and other Chinese provinces.

Technical Assessment of an HFC- 134a Phase-Out in the Chinese Light-Duty Motor Vehicle Sector

We generally combine data derived from China-specific studies with more robust data developed to support air conditioning system analysis in the US to develop a complete analysis dataset.To evaluate the emissions impacts associated with a transition away from HFC-134a, we also develop a set of corresponding MAC system data for three alternative refrigerants: HFC-152a, HFO-1234yf, and CO2 (R-744).

Public Private Partnership for Building Energy Efficiency

The report finds that, the funding gap in building energy saving will expand to 1.53 trillion RMB in the next five years, but the current government-led investment model is proved to be unaffordable and unsustainable. It is an imperative to attract private capital to the field, which will not only broaden funding channels, but also stimulate innovation and application of energy-efficient technologies and advanced management methods. This report was supported by Energy Foundation and released by the China Energy Conservation Association in 2017.

Driving Forces of Low Carbon Development in Chinese Communities

Through questionnaires and field interviews in typical communities, this report analyzes the current status and possible trends of China's low carbon communities, identifies their problems in terms of policy, funding, and technology, and proposes feasible solutions. It helps to better understand the status quo, and provides a pathway of promoting low carbon development in communities first, and then expanding them to the city level. The research was supported by Energy Foundation China and released by the Institute for Sustainable Communities and the Beijing Chaoyang Yuheng Sustainable Transportation Research Center in 2017.

Comprehensive Utilization of Solar Energy in Public Buildings

Researchers select three representative Chinese cities—Xining, Yinchuan, and Xichang—in the western region of abundant solar resources to investigate energy performance of public buildings. Combined with local building characteristics and meteorological data, the analysis establishes an evaluation model for comprehensive utilization of solar energy in typical public buildings. Based on the model, the report identifies the optimal combination of solar energy utilization in a typical public building in a solar-rich region. This research was supported by Energy Foundation China and conducted by the China Southwest Architectural Design and Research Institute and the China Architecture Design Group.
