CONSULTING PORTFOLIO

Energy Management Systems for Chinese Municipalities

  • Spearheaded the China Sustainable Energy City project, which demonstrated that quantitative energy management systems could be an effective framework to operationalize the “scientific approach to development” in Chinese energy policymaking at the city level. Successful pilot led to 3-year, $5 million Low-Carbon City China program.
  • Partners: Policy Solutions / ENCO Switzerland / NDRC Energy Research Institute
  • Co-Financing: Government of Switzerland and project partners
  • Completed: 2009
