It explores the recent past as well as potential future developments and potential policy options. The chapter is organized as follows. Section 2.2 presents a brief overview of energy use in China. It also provides projections from the US Energy Information Agency of energy use in China up to 2030 as well as projections from the G-Cubed model for carbon emissions under different assumptions about the sources of economic growth in China. As well as considering the environmental problems in China, Section 2.3 considers policy responses and some quantitative evaluation of these for greenhouse emissions.
