The Obama-Hu energy agreements in November 2009 and the Copenhagen climate talks reinvigorated discussions on the need for the United States and China to collaborate on energy and climate issues, but translating that enthusiasm into concrete projects can be elusive. On March 11th, 2010, CEF will host three speakers who will present on the current political climate around energy and climate issues in China and introduce their joint work to help promote public-private energy efficiency initiatives and better measurement of greenhouse gas emissions in two of China’s most industrialized provinces, Guangdong and Jiangsu.
