Building on the successful work of the Interdependencies on Energy and Climate Security for China and Europe project, this project with E3G, the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) and the Chinese Energy Research Institute (ERI), will focus on four key areas - low carbon zones; harmonization of energy efficiency standards; scaling up EU-China technical and financial cooperation in areas such as carbon labelling and carbon markets; and lessons for other developing countries.
