China’s Energy Future


ConocoPhillips Environmental Lecture Series

Economic growth, especially as a result of investment in heavy industry, has rapidly increased China’s share of global energy use. Weak enforcement from Beijing and local authorities who appear to opt for profit over environmental efforts emphasize the need for a stronger energy policy in twenty-first-century China.

Join Trevor Houser as he discusses environmental challenges, international energy security, and the economic and political drivers of energy sector developments in China and their implications for energy consumers in the US and around the world.
