Energy and Environmental Integration in China


Synapse Senior Associate Chris James was retained to work with RAP on the following areas: improving integration of energy and environmental policies in the ministry of environmental project and the grid operators; adopting policies to improve energy efficiency for the industrial sector and multi-pollutant strategies for air quality. The project involved direct meetings with Chinese government officials, who are primarily located in Beijing. Several short papers have been written to help Chinese officials with emissions trading, the U.S. RGGI program, output-based emissions standards and multi-pollutant approaches for air quality. 

Project completed March 2010.
