The China-US Energy Efficiency Alliance is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to combating global climate change by promoting energy efficiency as the cleanest and least expensive energy resource in China. The Alliance has been working for more than seven years to help China implement practical strategies to harness efficiency in ways that are appropriate for local conditions and, thereby, reduce the need for new coal-fired power plants.
The Alliance is able to achieve substantial, concrete results by:
- Working directly with key Chinese officials at all levels of government who have invited the Alliance to provide regulatory and technical advice and training; and
- Mobilizing our powerful network of experts, officials, and other key stakeholders to share experience and best practices from the US while keeping our administrative costs to a minimum.
The past half decade has seen a revolution in China’s perspective on energy efficiency, leading to policies promoting efficiency and national regulations that went into effect in 2011 requiring efficiency programs in every province with measurable annual reductions in energy use. This has led to an increased interest in understanding how to design and implement efficiency programs throughout the country.
