Energy Foundation China is a professional grantmaking charitable organization registered in California, U.S. It has been working in China since 1999, and is dedicated to China’s sustainable energy development. The foundation’s China representative office is registered with the Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau and supervised by the National Development and Reform Commission of China.

Our vision is to achieve prosperity and a safe climate through sustainable energy. Our mission is to achieve greenhouse gas emissions neutrality, world-class air quality, energy access, and green growth through transforming energy and optimizing economic structure. We deliver the mission by serving as a regrantor, facilitator, and strategic advisor.

With a view to assisting China in coping with development, energy, environment, and climate challenges, we support policy and standard research, capacity building, and international cooperation across seven fields: power, industry, transportation, cities, environmental management, low carbon economic growth, and strategic communications. In addition to the sector-by-sector work, we also contribute to crosscutting and integrated issues that have big impacts on China’s decarbonized development through seven task forces: Long-Term Strategy for Decarbonization, Coal Transition, Urbanization, Electrification, Air Quality, Belt and Road Initiative, Track II Cooperation.

Our grantees include leading policy research institutes, academies, industry associations, local energy efficiency institutions, and NGOs in China and abroad, such as the Development Research Center of the State Council, the Energy Research Institute of the National Development and Reform Commission, the National Center for Climate Change Strategy and International Cooperation, the Chinese Academy of Environmental Planning, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Tsinghua University, the Institute of Public and Environmental Affairs, China Research Academy of Environmental Sciences, China Automotive Technology and Research Center, etc.


Clean Power Program aims at supporting China put the Chinese power sector on a clean, low-carbon trajectory, one that over the next 35 years aligns with a worldwide strategy to limit global warming to 2℃. To support this 2℃ vision, we strive to peak China’s power sector carbon emissions by 2025 and to acquire more than 80 percent of the country’s electricity from renewables by 2050.

Specifically, we cover the following initiatives:

  1. Improve power system planning and operation to accelerate investment in, and use of, low- and zero-carbon resources;
  2. Assist the government in implementing power sector reform to establish market models and regulatory frameworks that are favorable to energy efficiency and renewable energy;
  3. Break down institutional barriers, develop robust business models, and implement pilots and demonstrations to accelerate the development of distributed renewable energy and smart energy internet; and
  4. Improve renewable energy industrial policies and conduct long-term scenario analysis to promote adoption of a national energy transition strategy toward a high renewable energy penetration future.
