Join the California-China Climate Institute for the report launch of “Energy Efficiency and Air Quality Strategies in the U.S. and China: A review of best-practices for buildings, transport, and industry.”

After a history of energy efficiency’s inclusion in California’s climate policies and their implications for the buildings sector, we will turn to best-practices and recommendations for efficiency improvements in the transport and cement sectors in China. 

Through discussion, our panel of climate policy experts will share their analysis on energy efficiency in climate plans and their co-benefits, and opportunities for moving forward.
