China and the U.K. to Collaborate on Climate Change and Energy Security

Written by Neal Martin

On September 18 to 21, China’s Energy Research Institute (ERI) will join with the United Kingdom’s Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) for a Beijing conference focused on how best to tackle climate change and energy security, including ERI’s efforts to adapt the U.K.’s “2050 Calculator” to the Chinese economy.

According to the DECC, the 2050 Calculator provides a comprehensive analysis of plausible ways to a secure, low carbon energy system in the U.K. to 2050. Further, DECC says that ERI has created a tool that allows the user to select how China will achieve its energy security up to 2050.
