Renewable Energy Implementation and Low Carbon Investment in Asia -- US, China, and Myanmar Cooperation

At the 24th Conference of the Parties (COP24) of the UNFCCC, CCS and its China partners the Global Environmental Institute (GEI) and the Guangzhou Institute for Energy Conversion (GIEC), shared results from pilot application of new tools for renewable energy implementation in South China and Southeast Asia.
