CCS, China Partners Launch Guangdong and Huangpu Pilots

CCS, China Partners Launch Guangdong and Huangpu Pilots

Guangzhou, China.  After extensive tool assessment and development, the Center for Climate Strategies (CCS), its South China partner, the Guangdong Institute for Energy Conversion (GIEC), and its longtime China Low Carbon Development (LCD) partner, the Global Environmental Institute (GEI), announced plans to pilot a series of new renewable energy implementation tools in the Guangdong Province and the Huangpu Economic Development Zone in the City of Guangzhou.

New tools will enhance the China Subnational LCD Toolkit for Planning and Analysis developed jointly by CCS and GEI and the Chinese Academy of Sciences Institute for Policy Management (CAS-IPM). They address four component areas critical to renewable energy technology implementation in South China and emerging economies:

Results of the South China pilot will be shared at the November 2017 meeting of the 23rd Conference of the Parties (COP23) in Bonn, Germany and create a platform for expansion of renewable energy implementation in China, Asia, and other key regions through cooperative partnership approaches.
