Events: Shale Gas Revolution in China: Game Changer for Coal? organized by Woodrow Wilson Center on 15 Mar 2013


Shale Gas Revolution in China: Game Changer for Coal?

March 15, 2013 // 9:00am — 11:00am

Webcast: There will be a live webcast of this event.
According to China’s 12th Fifth-Year Plan, the Chinese government is prioritizing more gas in the energy mix, using it as a “bridging” fuel between coal and a cleaner energy future. Although a shale and natural gas revolution is unlikely, at least in the short-term, these forms of energy offer promise of a more low-carbon development path for China. Mr. Xizhou Zhou, IHS CERA Director of the China Energy Practice, will discuss whether China has enough gas to meet the growing demand, as well as the drivers and development potential of gas in China. Ms. Briana Mordick, a Staff Scientist at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), will highlight the challenges and opportunities in engaging China on shale gas environmental governance issues.
5th Floor, Woodrow Wilson Center
