    China's Climate Pathways: Peak emissions and carbon neutrality

    Energy Transition/Climate & Sustainability
    Amid challenges in the domestic and international markets, including relentlessly high commodity prices, China’s short-term policy focus is prioritizing economic growth stability and energy supply security. Nonetheless, the medium- to long-term goals of peaking carbon emissions by 2030 and reaching carbon neutrality by 2060 are also firmly and repeatedly confirmed by Beijing. How will the global energy supply crunch and price volatility impact China’s energy and power mix in the coming years? What will be the key new technologies to help China decarbonize? What is the role of natural gas in the decarbonization efforts? How do companies secure supply and adjust their strategies to align themselves with the decarbonization goals?
