Description

Professor Jiang Kejun, Senior Researcher at the Energy Research Institute in China gives this public lecture titled 'Scenarios for China's energy and climate policy' at ANU Crawford School on 13 March 2013.China's carbon dioxide emissions already account for nearly 24 per cent of global emissions, a trend that is expected to keep increasing. Thus the role of China in global GHG mitigation is crucial. Prof Jiang Kejun presents scenario analysis for China's carbon dioxide emissions and discuss the feasibility of China reaching a low-carbon scenario. The analysis suggests that recent and continued technological progress will make it possible for China's emissions to peak before 2025 and therefore that the global 2°C target to be achieved. Professor Jiang Kejun is Senior Researcher at Energy Research Institute, China. He leads modelling assessment for China's energy and environment policy. His research includes energy and emission scenarios, energy policy and energy markets, energy systems, climate change, local environment policies and international negotiations. His recent research includes energy and emission scenarios to 2030 and 2050, assessment on energy and fuel taxes and energy targets, as well development of an Integrated Policy Assessment model. Professor Jiang has been an author for successive Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports since 1997, and is a coordinating lead author in the IPCC 5th Assessment Report. This seminar is presented by the Centre for Climate Economics and Policy at the Crawford School of Public Policy at The Australian National University.
