Title: From fossil fuels to renewable energy: how does the energy transition affect China’s energy security
Abstract: At the sixth meeting of the Central Leading Group of Finance and Economics in 2014, Chinese President Xi Jinping proposed four requirements for an energy revolution to safeguard China’s energy security by promoting a revolution in energy consumption, supply, technology, and energy system. This study’s primary objective is to examine the relationship between the Chinese central government, local governments, and energy enterprises and to reveal to the reader how the Chinese government sector functions in the energy transition and how the energy transition affects and challenges China.
