Energy Efficiency in China
The concept of the energy efficiency resource goes beyond energy efficiency: increasing efficiency (thereby reducing energy demand) is as much a contribution to meeting energy needs as, for example, coal for power generation to increase supply (and has definite advantages from an environmental and cost perspective). We characterise the energy efficiency resource in the context of the overall Chinese energy system and demonstrate how business can take advantage of new incentives to utilise it to their competitive advantage. These incentives can include voluntary labelling schemes (incentive for manufacturers), sale of certified emission reductions under the Clean Development Mechanism (incentive to attract foreign direct investment and technology transfer), incentives offered via government programmes to promote energy efficiency under the 11th Five-Year Plan and Energy Conservation Law, and other financial incentives.
