For the past two years, leaders from China and the US have been working to build an action plan for dramatically increasing Sino-US cooperation in clean energy. With the recent agreement to create a joint Clean Energy Research Center, China and the US have taken a significant step on the road to broader cooperation.
The question now is what else should we do as part of this cooperative effort? Where are the best opportunities? What should our top priorities be? And how we can overcome the barriers that have hampered cooperation in the past? These are questions that have been addressed for the past two years by the Clean Energy Forum. Working groups, made up of experts in energy, finance, law and public policy from both countries, developed 8 initiatives designed to transform both countries' energy systems.
