In recent years China has overtaken the United States as the world's leading producer and consumer of energy. Since 2009 China's energy requirements have grown exponentially, particularly for coal and electricity, sparking international and national debates on the sustainability of growth and the accompanying environmental implications.

This unique study provides a comprehensive investigation into the Chinese energy market at both national and provincial levels covering issues such as energy security, institutional reforms, international relations, and environmental implications now and in the future. A host of international experts provide crucial analysis of the design of China's energy policies, examining how the imbalance between supply and demand, and a primitive transmission grid, influences the overall performance of the energy industry in China. They investigate the role played by institutions, renewable energies, ownership and open-door policy reforms as suitable mechanisms to reduce energy consumption and consequently to prevent climate change. The implications of such policies are also critically assessed in relation to economic growth.

Energy Security and Sustainable Economic Growth in China is an invaluable reference source for those working in or researching the Chinese energy is also essential reading for economists and researchers working across China, development economics, environmental economics and the energy sector.
