  • Institutions & Energy Policy

    Following China's entry into the WTO in 2001, China became the world's factory and engaged in an unprecedented economic and social development. China also started a process for the liberalisation of its energy sector, which so far has met many challenges on the path towards implementation...

  • Energy Companies

    Oil:

    The oil sector is dominated by four state-owned companies: China National Petroleum Corp (CNPC), China Petroleum and Chemical Corporation (Sinopec), China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC...

  • Energy Supply

    Resources:

    At the end of 2016 proven oil reserves were estimated at 2.6 Gt (reserves/production ratio of 13 years).and reserves of conventional natural gas are estimated at 2 644 bcm. China's shale gas resources are estimated at 32 tcm, making them the world's largest and attracting interest from...

  • Energy Prices

    Electricity:

    The prices of electricity are, in theory, fixed by the central authority. In practice, they are also strongly influenced by local authorities; local governments could soon be banned from providing discounts to large consumers. China has decided to link the electricity price to the price of coal...

  • Energy Consumption

    Total energy consumption per capita was around 2.3 toe/cap in 2016 (more than threefold India's per capita consumption and equal to 72% of the EU average).

    China's statistical agency indicated in 2015 that coal consumption in China has been underestimated since 2000, especially in recent...

  • Issues & Prospects

    The main priorities are to increase the production and, above all, diversify the supply sources in order to enhance China's energy independence, and to continue the reform of the electricity sector.

    The building of the new China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) - a network of roads,...
