Leveraging Water-Energy Nexus to Address Climate Change: Pumped-Storage Hydroelectricity as a Solution for Mitigating Renewables Curtailment in China

In October 2020, the World Resources Institute released this report on pumped-storage hydroelectricity (PSH), with support from Energy Foundation China. After analyzing current PSH policy and practice in China, the report identifies opportunities to develop more PSH as a viable solution for reducing renewable energy curtailment and coal demand. It also provides policy recommendations for accelerated PSH growth, so as to help healthy renewable energy expansion in the country.

Reaching WHO-III Air Quality Levels in the Pearl River Delta Region

In 2020, Energy Foundation China supported the Guangdong Provincial Academy of Environmental Sciences to design a medium- and long-term air quality strategy for the Pearl River Delta region in the province. In this report, researchers first identified the air quality and pollution control gap between international leading level and the current practice in the Pearl River Delta region, one of the most densely urbanized areas in the world, then they proposed pathways for the region and the entire Guangdong Province to achieve WHO-III air quality standards by 2030–2035. The report provides forward-looking guidance and impetus for regulators at all levels to raise air quality ambition and enhance green development in Guangdong.
