The Consortium for Energy Economics and Policy in China (CEEPIC)
RFF’s Center for Energy Economics and Policy (CEEP) has partnered with institutions in China to create a new collaboration dedicated to improving energy policy in China: the Consortium for Energy Economics and Policy in China (CEEPIC).
Led by RFF Fellow Zhongmin Wang, along with CEEP Director Alan Krupnick and Jintao Xu, Director of the China Center for Energy and Development in the National School of Economic Development at Peking University, CEEPIC conducts long-term, integrated economic studies, policy analyses, and outreach and student–researcher exchange activities that contribute to the sustainable development of China’s energy resources. The creation of this network will allow for coordinated research and engagement with policymakers, as well as capacity building.
CEEPIC’s initial focus is on four issue areas:
- Development risks, social costs, economics, and policies associated with unconventional fossil fuels;
- Transportation options for a low-carbon future;
- China’s pilot programs for carbon trading; and
- Economics and policies associated with renewable energy.
CEEPIC’s research partners in China represent the following:
- China Center for Energy and Development at Peking University
- Department of Energy Economics, Renmin University of China
- Chinese Academy of Energy Research at the China University of Petroleum
- School of Economics and Management, Tsinghua University
- Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business
- Southwest University of Economics and Finance (Chengdu)
