HKS Energy Policy Seminar

Cecilia Han Springer, HKS, will present "China's Belt and Road Initiative: A Clean Energy Paradox." 

China's trillion-dollar Belt and Road Initiative will have major implications for the global energy sector and climate change. While China is increasingly promoting clean energy domestically, coal-fired power plants are a large part of China's overseas investment portfolio. There is increasing media scrutiny of coal power plants and their climate impacts. This presentation will bring empirical data and analysis to the debate about China's role in coal power around the world by examining the environmental performance of China's overseas coal plants and investigating the uniqueness of Chinese investment. Lunch will be served.
