Europe-China dialogue on energy and climate collaboration

Europe and China have both set themselves on a path to achieve net-zero emissions. China aims to peak its national carbon emissions before 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality before 2060. That means a dramatic transformation of the country’s energy system in a relatively short period of time. To meet its commitment, China is expected to shift away from a fossil fuel-dominated energy economy and transition towards a renewables-based flexible system. In comparison, Europe – especially the member states of the European Union – have long played a leadership role on the global climate agenda, and thus accumulated substantial experience and lessons in pushing forward the energy transition. It is clear that policy dialogues are beneficial to move the energy transition and climate agenda forward in Europe, China and beyond.

Against the backdrop of rising global geopolitical tension and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, how can Europe and China mutually benefit from exchanges and collaboration on decarbonisation? What would be the biggest challenges in China’s decarbonisation process and how can the country tackle them based on the EU’s experience? Would practices in China also benefit the EU’s energy transition agenda?

To answer these questions, Agora Energiewende, SIIS and GIZ China co-hosted an online side event during the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue and discussed the prospects of Europe-China collaboration on energy transition and climate change.

The one-hour webinar will was held in Chinese and English with simultaneous interpretation.

中国和欧洲都设立了净零排放目标。中国力争2030年前二氧化碳排放达到峰值,努力争取2060年前实现碳中和。这意味着中国的能源系统需要在相对较短的时间内发生巨大的变革。为了实现这一承诺,预计中国将从以化石燃料为基础的能源经济向以可再生能源为主体的灵活系统转型。相比之下,欧洲——尤其是欧盟成员国——长期以来在全球气候议程上发挥着领导作用,在推动能源转型方面积累了大量的经验和教训。显然,政策对话有利于在中国、欧洲乃至世界其他地区推进能源转型和气候议程。

在全球地缘政治冲突加剧和新冠疫情持续的大背景下,中国和欧洲如何能从温室气体减排领域的交流和合作中实现双赢?中国在脱碳进程中面临的最大挑战是什么?中国如何借鉴欧盟的经验和教训来解决这些问题?中国的实践是否也会对欧洲国家的能源转型议程有所助益?

为回答以上问题,Agora能源转型论坛、上海国际问题研究院和德国国际合作机构(GIZ)将在柏林能源转型对话(BETD)期间联合主办一场线上边会,讨论中国与欧洲在能源转型和气候变化领域的合作前景。

此次网络研讨会共一小时,将以中文和英文举办,并提供同声传译。
