Developing impactful, science-based energy and environmental
solutions collaboratively with China.
Smart and Resilient Cities and Urban Infrastructure
The China Energy Group is working with Chinese stakeholders on low-carbon eco-city development to provide technical assistance on developing bilingual best practice guidebooks, guidelines, and strategies, to benchmark cities using indicator systems, and to develop, disseminate, and provide training on tools to evaluate cities.
For over two decades, the China Energy Group has worked collaboratively with diverse organizations in China to develop innovative policy solutions to help develop low-carbon markets focusing on the areas of optimizing governance solutions and policy-technology integration.
The China Energy Group is using its in-house detailed, bottom-up energy end-use model to analyze potential low-carbon energy demand and supply options at national, sectoral, and technology levels, to evaluate policy impacts, and to develop mid- and long-term outlooks for low-emissions pathways for China.
The China Energy Group is engaging with both demand and supply side stakeholders to promote demand response, demand side management, grid integration of renewable energy, and distributed energy resources as effective tools for moving to a low-carbon grid.
The China Energy Group is working with various Chinese and U.S. government and non-government partners to understand the energy efficiency of Chinese industry through policy analysis, integrated energy models, and analytical tools, as well as providing guidebooks, assessment tools, and training programs for Chinese stakeholders.
The China Energy Group provides technical assistance to Chinese government institutions, building research institutes, universities, and industries to build capacity in building and equipment standards, rating and label development and on building software tools, modeling future energy use, and very low energy buildings.
Reliable and accurate data are critical to good analysis for policy and business. In 1992, we released the first edition, acknowledged to be the most comprehensive and authoritative sourcebook of its kind. We have continued revising and expanding the database, currently in its 9th edition.
The U.S. – China Clean Energy Research Center Building Energy Efficiency Consortium (CERC-BEE) was established by protocol between the U.S. Department of Energy and Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology in 2009. Funded by the two governments and leading enterprises, expert teams collaboratively work to accelerate innovation, leading to commercial successes and real world impact, with the aim of achieving cost effective, very low energy and zero energy buildings.
