New Tools and Practices for Renewable Energy Implementation

New Tools and Practices for Renewable Energy Implementation

To provide new focus on US China cooperation and implementation of the Paris agreement, the Center for Climate Strategies (CCS) and its Chinese partners the Global Environmental Institute (GEI) and Guangzhou Institute of Energy Conversion (GIEC) hosted side events and meetings at COP 23 in Bonn, Germany to release results of their recent South China Renewable Energy Project and technical report detailing newly developed procedures, tools, and pilot testing for clean energy technology applications and renewable energy implementation cooperation inside and outside China.

Key tools developed and tested in South China’s Guangdong Province and Huangpu Technical and Economic Development Zone include:

As in other regions of the world, the need for renewable energy is high in China and growing. However, the demand for specific technology applications and investable products within the energy marketplace is less clear, and product failure risks can be high. Successful market scale implementation of renewable energy with high levels of market penetration requires tools and procedures with better resolution and reliability than conventional policy or financial analysis. Clearer, more highly integrated approaches are needed to meet the needs of all participating parties. The development of such systems and the tools needed to support them is a major opportunity for impact investors, technology producers, governments, and stakeholders in the US and China to accelerate market development for renewable energy and its many benefits.
