The revision of the Electricity Law proposed by China’s National Energy Administration (NEA) provides an opportunity to support the Chinese government’s goals for power sector reform, air quality improvements and a zero-carbon economy — including the new 2060 and “before 2030” goals for carbon emissions. The new language the NEA proposed regarding “clean energy,” “renewable energy” and “demand-side resources” is a good step forward, although there is more that can be done to strengthen the law. In this memo, RAP draws on international experience to offer options for ways the revised law can further support those goals.
