CETO 2021

With this first China Energy Transformation Outlook, CETO 2021, The Energy Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Macroeconomic Research, is moving into a more comprehensive analysis of the Chinese energy system than in the previous China Renewable Energy Outlooks. The CETO 2021 focuses on two different energy system scenarios for energy transformation. The first scenario is the baseline scenario, where China contributes to the global 2-degree goal and achieves carbon neutrality around 2070. The other scenario shows a path to meet the climate targets to peak CO2 emissions before 2030 and reach carbon neutrality before 2060.
