Statement before the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission: Policymaking and Energy Supply and Demand in China’s Domestic Economy

On 17 March, Michal Meidan testified before the U.S.-China Economic & Security Review Commission on China’s Energy Plans and Practices.

In her testimony, Michal discussed the outlook for China’s fossil fuel demand in China, the successes and challenges associated with fossil fuel supply and how this fits into the country’s low carbon energy transition. Michal assessed these successes and challenges through three factors: economic stability, supply security and environmental sustainability and argued that from Beijing’s perspective, the domestic availability of fossil fuels helps China meet both economic stability and energy security, even as it works to enhance environmental sustainability.
