So why are China’s carbon emissions stabilising and will this continue? This question is answered by the newly published book: China’s Role in Reducing Carbon Emissions – The Stabilisation of Energy Consumption and the Deployment of Renewable Energy. This book discusses the prospects for China achieving radical reductions in carbon emissions, within the context of the current economic and political landscape. With a particular focus on technologies such as such as wind power, solar power and electric vehicles, Toke examines the way in which China is transitioning to a state of stable energy consumption via a service-based economy and heavy investment in non-fossil energy sources. The book concludes that China may be set to reduce its carbon emissions by around two-thirds by 2050.
