Europe and China have both set themselves on a path to achieve net-zero emissions. China aims to peak its national carbon emissions before 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality before 2060. That means a dramatic transformation of the country’s energy system in a relatively short period of time. To meet its commitment, China is expected to shift away from a fossil fuel-dominated energy economy and transition towards a renewables-based flexible system. In comparison, Europe – especially the member states of the European Union – have long played a leadership role on the global climate agenda, and thus accumulated substantial experience and lessons in pushing forward the energy transition. It is clear that policy dialogues are beneficial to move the energy transition and climate agenda forward in Europe, China and beyond.

Against the backdrop of rising global geopolitical tension and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, how can Europe and China mutually benefit from exchanges and collaboration on decarbonisation? What would be the biggest challenges in China’s decarbonisation process and how can the country tackle them based on the EU’s experience? Would practices in China also benefit the EU’s energy transition agenda?

To answer these questions, Agora Energiewende, SIIS and GIZ China co-hosted an online side event during the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue and discussed the prospects of Europe-China collaboration on energy transition and climate change.

The one-hour webinar will was held in Chinese and English with simultaneous interpretation.
