China’s electric power sector accounts for ~25 percent of global coal consumption, contributes roughly 10 percent of global CO2 emissions, and produces 35 percent of China’s primary smog pollutants. Because of the sheer size of the sector, seemingly small improvements can lead to large reductions in global CO2 emissions. The Rocky Mountain Institute is partnering with key Chinese and international stakeholders to promote the use of the lowest-cost electric generation resources in China’s power sector. Simply making China’s power system operate on rational economic principles could reduce global emissions by up to 1 percent by 2020 and save China up to $14 billion annually in fuel costs. This grant will fund modeling and convenings.
