Environment and Energy

  • Market Transformation of Energy Efficient Bricks and Rural Buildings Project

    60 per cent of China’s buildings are in rural areas, made from clay bricks which have poor insulating qualities and require more energy to produce. This project aims to facilitate the transformation of local markets to more energy-efficient alternatives.

  • SECTOR PLAN FOR PHASE-OUT OF HCFCS IN THE ICR SECTOR IN CHINA STAGE-I (FOR 2013 AND 2015 COMPLIANCE)

    As a signatory to the Montreal Protocol, China is obliged to meet emissions reduction targets for Ozone Depleting Substances for several intervals, and is making efforts to meet these goals with UNDP's assistance.

  • China Hydrogen Economy Pilot in Rugao

    China, the second largest economy in the world, has become the world’s largest energy producer and consumer. With its great dependency on fossil fuels, China became the largest emitter of greenhouse gases and has been seriously affected by air pollution. As a clean energy solution, hydrogen can be produced from various renewable energy resources and has 0 emissions after combustion. Hydrogen Economy, a future which fully utilizes hydrogen as the main power source to meet the energy demands of society, can therefore help address energy issues in China.
