Energy Transition under Carbon Neutrality


Climate change has emerged as one of the major challenges faced by mankind. It has become a non-traditional global security issue, which causes a serious threat to the survival of human being and sustainable development. China's commitment to peak carbon emissions by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060 has important strategic significance for building a modern socialist country with harmonious coexistence between human and nature. Facing the challenge of China's carbon peak and carbon neutrality, this study proposes, through energy revolution, to promote electric decarbonization and zero carbonization power and zero carbonization fuel on the energy supply side, and to enhance energy utilization efficiency, re-electrification, and intelligence on the energy demand side. Thus, a clean, zero-carbon, safe and efficient energy system will be established with new energy as the main body and fossil energy plus carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) and nuclear energy as the guarantee.
