China’s Energy and Technology Development to Support Global 2 Degree Target


Article Preview

Globally 2 degree target by 2100 was confirmed in the international negotiation process in recent years. The remained question is whether this target is feasible or not by thinking slow progress in last decades even though Kyoto Protocol set up targets by 2010. The IPCC called research teams on modeling to analyze the possible pathway, policies options, and cost benefit analysis for GHG mitigation. China’s CO2 emission from energy and cement process already accounts for nearly 24% of global emission, and the trend is expected to keep increasing. The role of China in the global GHG mitigation is crucial. This paper presents the scenario analysis for China’s Energy System in the background of global 2 degree target, and discussed the feasibility for the lower CO2 emission scenario in China. The finding says it is possible for China to limit CO2 emission, reach emission peak before 2025, which make the global 2 degree target feasible, in Which energy system development is a kry . And recent progress of key technologies, availability for further investment on low carbon, policy implementation make it much big possibility for China to go to low carbon emission development pathway.
