A discussion paper on a mechanism for sectoral emission reduction action: the case of China's electricity sector
A discussion paper on a mechanism for sectoral emission reduction action: the case of China's electricity sector

1st December 2008

Organisation(s): Global Wind Energy Council, Greenpeace

Topic(s): Domestic policy, Economics, Renewables

The authors of this paper discuss mitigation and financing potentials of China’s electricity sector. It is a very large emitting sector, and there are many technologies available for improving emissions performance. They believe there are significant potential benefits both for sustainable development in developing countries and for the global atmosphere. However, they emphasise that theirs is a proposal for a voluntary mechanism, therefore countries must be convinced that it is in their best interests in order for it to proceed.
