Date of this Version


Document Type

Conference Paper


China’s economic development is confronted with the two related constraints of domestic energy depletion and higher prices for international energy. These constrictions and the “shale gas revolution” which originated in the United States of America has prompted China to formulate an alternative energy strategy. Energy security policy for China is thus both a developmental challenge as well as a new sphere of strategic completion. Success in policy-making in the emergent field of alternative energy sources will enable China to seize the leading power position in the future economic landscape.
