ERI is a national research organization that conducts studies on China’s energy issues. Its work is carried out by ERI forms the basis of Energy and Climate Change policy implemented in China by NDRC.
REEEP says that ERI’s joining of an international clean energy partnership is an indication of the Chinese government’s desire to accelerate energy conservation and renewable energy in the country. REEEP has been working in China since 2003, implementing 16 projects focused on policies, regulations, finance, and business issues.
China intends to use REEEP as a vehicle to gain access to international experience and best practices on energy efficiency and renewable energy, in order to strengthen the significant efforts that China has already made in renewable energy and energy efficiency development.
REEEP announced plans to work with the Chinese government and industry associations to develop a report on Chinese Achievements in Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency. REEEP will also work together with ERI to support new policy measures that increase the role of sustainable energy in China’s transition to a low carbon economy.
