The case of the Electric Power Sector.
主讲内容：The Paris Agreement has created a bottom-up climate governance system, where increasing emphasis is placed on decarbonization and the transformation of national energy systems and economies. A fundamental shift occurred in the framing of climate policy from being perceived as an economic burden to distribute, which had dominated the international negotiations until the Copenhagen Summit in 2009, to being seen as positive for business, and even necessary for economic growth. Both the European Union (EU) and Chinese governments took an active part in the construction of this new paradigm, which laid down the ideational foundations of the adoption of the Paris Agreement.
The lecture will provide a comparison of how the EU and China have introduced industrial policy considerations in their climate change policies and institutions, between the time of the Copenhagen Summit and that of the Paris Summit. It will analyse the governance institutions and the climate policies adopted on both sides. It will also provide an analysis of how the EU and China have promoted the development of renewable energy, including the dilemma brought by trade disputes in renewable energy technologies.
The lecture will be given in English, but the Q&A can include questions in English and in Chinese.
