Boosting Renewable Energy as part of China’s energy system revolution

The project “Boosting Renewable Energy as part of China’s energy system revolution” aims to maximize renewable energy as a vital part of the future Chinese energy system, enabling China to implement international best-practice solutions for the transformation of the energy system.

The program will give support to the China National Energy Administration regarding the decisions on the future targets for renewable energy and for coal reduction. It will address the most critical obstacles for the future development of renewable energy and develop a comprehensive look at the whole energy system – from demand to production in order to find the optimal ways to develop a sustainable energy system that can be a model for the world.

In cooperation with international front-runners, CNREC will bring international experiences and success stories to a Chinese audience with the aim of finding the best solutions for a Chinese energy transformation.


China National Renewable Energy Centre (CNREC) is a research institute and think tank for policy research on renewable energy. CNREC is part of the Energy Research Institute under the National Development and Reform Commission and it provides the National Energy Administration with research results for energy strategic planning and energy administration.

National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) is the U.S. Department of Energy’s primary national laboratory for renewable energy and energy efficiency research and development. NREL is the operating agent of the U.S.-China Renewable Energy Partnership (USCREP), a bilateral effort for which CNREC is the Chinese partner.
Danish Energy Agency (DEA) provides national policy makers the basis for implementing the ambitious Danish energy strategy for a society without fossil fuels in 2050. DEA has been collaborating with CNREC since 2012 through the Sino-Danish RED Program.


The project is funded by the London based charity, the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation as part of its climate mitigation activities; Danish Government also provides fund supports.
