China's Future Generation 2.0 Released
China’s Future Generation 2.0: Assessing the Potential for Maximum Renewable Power Sources in China to 2050 was released in December 2015 in Paris. This research was supported by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
The study models China’s electric power future out to 2050 and explores the potential for reducing carbon, nitrogen, and sulfur emissions as well as the cost of providing a reliable power supply.
The report finds that:
• Around 84% of China’s electricity generation can be met by renewable sources by mid-century if appropriate policies and measures are taken, and conditional upon aggressive energy efficiency improvements.
• China could meet or beat its commitment to peak its overall carbon emissions by 2030.

Entri has studied the benefits and costs of a rivers conservation scenario in China for International Rivers in Beijing. This work was supported by Entri, Transition Energy, the Blue Moon Fund and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
Coming soon: We have completed a study of the impact on emissions if China were to switch to all-electric vehicles. This report will be available here in late October.
