<p>China’s industrial sector dominates the country’s total energy consumption and energy<br />efficiency in the industry sector is crucial to help China reach its energy and CO<sub>2</sub> emissions<br />reduction goals. There are many energy efficiency policies in China, but the motivation and<br />willingness of enterprises to improve energy efficiency has weakened. This report first<br />identifies barriers that enterprises face to be self‐motivated to implement energy efficiency<br />measures. Then, this report reviews international policies and programs to improve energy<br />efficiency and evaluates how these policies helped to address the identified barriers. Lastly,<br />this report draws conclusions and provides recommendations to China in developing<br />policies and programs to motivate enterprises to improve energy efficiency.</p>
