Grants to this Grantee
for power beyond coal in China
This renewal grant continues support for Lawrence Berkeley National Lab’s ongoing work to deepen and accelerate decarbonization of China’s power sector. The research will provide strong scientific evidence that China does not need any more fossil fuel (particularly ~200 GW of proposed coal), and can meet reliability obligations at a provincial level with all new clean generation capacity, drawing a pathway for China to phase down most coal well ahead of its net-zero target.

for the International Energy Analysis Department Program on Clean Energy in India and China
This grant will support the India and China programs of the International Energy Analysis Department at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. In India, the Lab will advance transport electrification and clean-power deployment through the provision of scientific analysis, executive training, and technical assistance. In China, the Lab will assess decarbonization pathways in power and end-use sectors.
