Yingxia Yang Presents at Power Sector Roundtable Hosted by The Paulson Institute

Brattle Associate Yingxia Yang presented at the Power Sector Roundtable event discussing the recent report released by The Paulson Institute, “Going for Gold: Championing Renewable Integration in Jing-Jin-Ji.”

The report examines best practices in renewable integration in Texas and Germany and sheds light on potential solutions to solve the wind curtailment problems that are currently challenging Jing-Jin-Ji and China in its clean energy transition. Last summer, Beijing and neighboring city Zhangjiakou, two key cities in the Jing-Jin-Ji area, won their joint bid to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. It is critical for them to reach air quality and low-carbon energy goals, and to demonstrate leadership on the critical question of how to embrace a sustainable energy development model.

Dr. Yang was invited as a panelist to discuss her research and thoughts on the reasons for high curtailment rates in China, and the potential solutions drawing upon the successful experience with renewable development in Texas.

The roundtable brought together policymakers, grid companies, and NGOs in China. The event was co-hosted by The Paulson Institute and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), in collaboration with the National Energy’s Administration’s China National Renewable Energy Center and the National Development and Reform Commission Energy Research Institute’s Center for Renewable Energy Development.
