The Chinese Society for Electrical Engineering holds High-Level Forum on ETS and the Power Sector with Support from GIZ

06 December 2017 – The Chinese Society for Electrical Engineering (CSEE) held a conference on ‘Carbon Emissions and Emissions Trading in China’s Power Sector’ in Hangzhou. The conference was implemented by the Huadian Electric Power Research Institute (CHDER) and supported by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), SinoCarbon, the International Carbon Action Partnership (ICAP) and the Shenzhen Emissions Exchange.  The CSEE Committee on Environmental Protection also took the occasion for the ceremonial inauguration of its new working group on emission reduction and carbon trading.

Under the motto of “Embracing the National ETS, Power Sector in Action”, Chinese and foreign experts held presentations on emissions trading, the power sector and low-carbon transition for an audience of 300 participants. As the power sector will be the first sector to be covered by the national ETS, the conference provided a platform for high-level exchange among policy makers, researchers and the power industry in preparation for the imminent launch of the system.

Dr. XIONG Xiaoping (Energy Research Institute) and Prof. DUAN Maosheng (China Carbon Market Research Center at the Tsinghua University) presented relevant data and key findings on the development of China’s power sector and the implications for the long-term goal of reducing GHG emissions. Furthermore, Dr. Felix MATTHES (Öko-Institut) and Mr. William ACWORTH (ICAP) shared international expertise and experiences regarding the inclusion of the power sector into an ETS.
