The programme is organised in the following focus areas: Clean Technologies:
offshore wind, winter heating, energy storage and smart grid-connected technologies, civil nuclear and low carbon transport
Bridging the Transition:
pathways for reduced coal utilisation
power sector reform and systems thinking
International Governance and Engagement:
international energy governance, South-South engagement & Belt and Road Initiative
Each area has significant potential for emissions reduction; interest from the Chinese Government for support; strong UK expertise in either policy, regulatory, research, or supply chain; and, is additional to work being done by other donors.
The programme will be implemented via grant funded Technical Assistance (TA) activities, including but not be limited to policy research, knowledge sharing, training and capacity building activities that address China’s needs for a successful and fast transition to a low carbon inclusive growth model.
