The Future of China’s Energy Market

August 2016

Energy is a recurrent topic in debates involving the population, politicians and scientists. There is growing concern about limited fossil fuel reserves and climate change. Society is divided over which solutions should be privileged. The accident in Fukushima in 2011 has re‐launched the debate on the safety of nuclear energy.
It is therefore natural that the IHEST has made energy one of its main topics, publishing online debates and reports on different aspects of this subject.
Energy consumption and CO2 emissions are relatively stable in the Western world, but increasing rapidly in many countries, including China.
China’s size and growing economic weight mean that developments and trends in the energy sector have a global impact.
This report first gives a short overview on China’s current energy situation before taking a closer look at its R&D activity in this field.
The report then focuses on the current situation and likely technological developments in the fossil fuel, the nuclear and the renewable energy sectors.
China’s energy policies and outlook are the topic of another IHEST report : “Energy Policies in China and Vietnam”.
