[New book release] China’s Carbon-Energy Policy and Asia’s Energy Transition” Routlege


Dear JASID members,

This is Akihisa Mori of Kyoto University. I’m pleased to issue a release that China’s Carbon-Energy Policy and Asia’s Energy Transition is published from Routledge, and becomes open access this month.


You can download the whole book as well as each chapter from this website. The book is a research result of the previous research project funded by JSPS entitled International relocation of carbon emissions: China’s Carbon-Energy Policy and Asia’s Energy Transition.

It aims to explore how China’s carbon-energy policy has impacted Asia’s energy transition through outbound FDI of coal power and exports of wind and solar energy goods, and from carbon leakage, relocation, and halos perspective, and give implications to pathways toward carbon neutral in Asia.

The contexts and authors are as follows.
