Implications for China of North American Energy Independence

The US has substantially reduced its reliance on imported fossil fuel energy. This trend towards “energy independence” is much debated and has important implications for the world and specifically for China. International and Chinese experts debated North American, and especially US, energy developments and their implications at a recent round table conference in Beijing.  The Oxford Institute for Energy Studies (OIES) and the Centre for International Energy and Environment Strategy Studies of Renmin University (CIEESS) organised the conference, with the support of the British Embassy in Beijing. Dr David Robinson (OIES) and Dr. Xu Qinhua(CIEESS) summarise the proceedings.
