China's energy transition: performance possibilities and pathways

Dong Wang

Research output: ThesisDoctoral Thesis

Abstract

This research analyses China's energy transition in terms of its performance, possible energy mix and transition pathways. The research investigates the relationship between energy transition and economic growth; examines the extent to which modem energy can substitute for traditional energy; and identifies the drivers of energy transition. The findings suggest that China's transition to cleaner energy is accelerating. Economic growth has increased the capital intensity of the Chinese economy. This capital deepening has increased the substitutability between fuels and reduced the prices of modem fuels.
