This report is the result of two years of analysis of energy pathways, policy indicators, technology trends and investment requirements. It provides the building blocks for Jilin City to take a decisive step towards achieving low carbon development and become a national leader in China. The report argues that low carbon development is highly consistent with the city's existing objectives, including reducing energy intensity by shifting its manufacturing base to higher-added-value, advanced technology products; achieving excellent resource efficiency (the circular economy); realizing balanced urban-rural growth; and, critically, fulfilling China's scientific development concept.
