Restructuring the Chinese Electricity Supply Sector: Lessons from International Experience
本次能源经济学研讨会邀请到英国剑桥大学Michael G. Pollitt教授做学术演讲。
China is the world’s largest electricity producer and the largest producer of non-hydro renewable energy and of coal. 65% of Chinese coal production is consumed in its power sector and around 70% of all its electricity comes from coal. China’s coal based electricity sector alone produces 7% of global carbon dioxide equivalent emissions, and around one third of China’s domestic emissions. Under the current Five Year Plan (FYP13: 2016-2020) China’s electricity sector is undergoing a major transition from a state managed system to a market price based one, following the publication of the No.9 document of March 2015 which re-launched a new round of ‘power market reform’ in China. This paper focuses on the international lessons for China in the light of the current round of power market reforms and paying attention to the particular context of the Chinese electricity system.
