Front Cover
International Energy Agency, 2006 - Business & Economics - 158 pages
With the fastest growing energy demand in the world, China is now the largest electricity consumer after the United States. Assessing the current state of electricity regulation in China, this report draws on experience elsewhere to explore how better to develop and communicate strategy, how to moderate growth in demand through increased efficiency, how to integrate environmental goals into planning and operation, how to ensure sufficient supply when and where it is needed, and how to handle institutional and governance challenges. In this respect, electricity sector reform in other countries offers valuable lessons as to how China might proceed. As it describes perspectives and challenges for the Chinese power sector, China's Power Sector Reforms: Where to next? is a useful tool for policy makers and business leaders
