In China, where industrialization, city development and progressive agriculture have developed substantially, 9789814374187the problem of carbon emission is more acute. China began its 11th Five-Year Plan (FYP) in 2006 and set a target to reduce energy intensity of Chinese economy by 20% from the 2005 level.  The present title, Review of Low-Carbon Development in China 2010, discusses China’s energy performance in key sectors, like Energy, Manufacturing, Building, Transportation, and Agriculture and Forestry and describes the policies and instruments implemented to meet this goal and provide insight into what measures could be taken to achieve the target in the next FYP. Also this assessment will guide the future research and policies.

Such a comprehensive and integrated annual review allows China to address its low-carbon development efforts, and offers some insights and questions to consider as China works to meet the future through 2020 based on research efforts conducted by the Climate Policy Initiative at Tsinghua - an independent, experienced and professional research group.   China’s carbon emissions intensity fell largely as a result of reduced energy intensity, demonstrating the important role of energy efficiency in the transition to a low-carbon economy.  With additional carbon-specific policies, China could expect carbon intensity to fall faster than energy intensity in the future.  Initial analysis indicates that many of the policies implemented to meet the 11th FYP target were top-down administrative measures and required significant financial and human resources and may not be the most cost-effective way to achieve future targets.

This highly informative sector-wise report published by World Scientific will be found very indispensable by researchers, policy-makers, entrepreneurs, and students who have interest on the issue of global low-carbon developments around the world and in knowing particularly the China’s efforts and experiences to meet the target. Appendix 1 lists 70 such low carbon technologies.
