about this item

Energy policy has always been an important part of China’s national policy agenda. Although the overall Chinese economy has become largely market-driven, its energy sectors are still subject to varying degrees of government control. Authoritarian governance allows China to move very quickly in some areas, such as hydropower, nuclear power, wind power, and solar energy. However, fragmented authoritarianism has also led to many infightings and impasses.

With a specific focus on energy supply, Energy Policy in China provides a succinct account of China’s energy policy over the last sixty years. Using separate chapters dedicated to each energy sub-sector, Chi-Jen Yang introduces and discusses both the achievements and failures of the Chinese energy systems, as well as the strengths and insufficiencies of energy governance in China.

This book is an interdisciplinary study written for a broad audience, including those researching and working in the fields of energy policy, business strategy and government administration, as well as Chinese and Asian Studies more broadly.
