Sustainable Energy Transition, Energy Finance and Circular Economy
Climate change and sustainable development are world’s most pressing challenges. In November 2021, UN Global Climate Summit will be held in Glasgow, making a global commitment to reduce carbon emission over next decades and beyond. Rising CO2 emissions have clearly negative environmental consequences. Currently, the world emits around 36 billion tonnes of CO2, and 34 billion tonnes are from fossil energy consumption of oil, gas and coal, accounting 94% of the world emission. For energy spent on supply of electricity and heat alone, it produces 49% of the world emission. Energy is a key phenomenon affecting our environment decisively along with China as the largest emitter in the world, emitting more than 27% of global carbon emissions, compared with 18% of the US. Studies on energy, or China, in relation to finance to enable sustainable and climate friendly investment are valuable. Particularly, knowledge learnt from academic research will be very meaningful in support of the 2021 UN Global Climate Summit in the UK.
