Zhou Yang works with the Natural Resources Defense Council China based in Beijing on the Oil Cap Project and Coal Cap Project. Zhou works closely with governments, industry associations, and research institutes to support programmes on China's fossil fuel reduction, energy transition, and climate mitigation. Her work focuses on pilot projects with local partners on supporting coal consumption cap policy implementation in provinces and cities.
