On 27 April, 2017, The Lantau Group, in collaboration with Renmin University of China, held a public seminar on China’s energy economy. Participants discussed four main themes: the link between energy use and economic growth, how geography and demographics affect energy use, the implications for renewable energy from the latest energy policy reforms, and China’s continuing experience with curtailment of wind and solar energy.
Open to all and free to attend, the seminar formed part of The Lantau Group’s continuing engagement in public policy as it aims to raise understanding of key energy issues and commercial risks, while enhancing policy effectiveness.
The seminar featured presentations from leading Chinese academics and The Lantau Group’s own consultants. A fifty-strong audience drawn from government, academia, energy-sector companies, and related NGOs attended.
