Comments Off on Upcoming Google Hangout: Energy Security in China

Economic growth might be slowing down in China, securing enough energy for the future is still one of its major headaches. In the next China Weekly Hangout we will focus on energy security, the first of a range of hangouts on sustainability.

How successful is China is securing its energy supply, and what are the consequences for the environment, international relations? How is the country promoting green energy, does it work, and how does it deal with international complaints it is subsidizing its energy industry. And is that bad?
The pros and cons of coal, nuclear power, wind energy, solar power, building dams in rivers and the efforts to save energy: enough subjects to cover with our panel, which will include (but it not limited to):

Terry Cooke is the founder of the China Partnership of Greater Philadelphia, a non-profit platform to accelerate public-private collaboration between Greater Philadelphia and China in clean energy and energy-efficient buildings. He is also a Senior Fellow at the T.C. Chan Center for Building Simulation and Energy Studies at the University of Pennsylvania (and Tsinghua University, Beijing). He most recently was elected to the Global Oversight Committee of The Philadelphia Orchestra.
