OIES Podcast – China’s energy plans and macroeconomic realities?

In this OIES podcast David Ledesma talks to Michal Meidan about China’s recently published energy five-year plans and how they align with the country’s near-term priorities. David and Michal discuss the macroeconomic outlook in China and the implications of the zero-tolerance approach to COVID for oil and gas demand, as well as how the Russian invasion of Ukraine is impacting both macroeconomic priorities and energy flows. The podcast also considers how the recently published energy five year plans will shape China’s energy use and policies as the country seeks to reach net zero, but also the ongoing reliance on fossil fuels, and how technological innovation is considered in these plans.
