In an interview with Biz Asia, RAP principal David Moskovitz highlights the potential for energy efficiency to help China meet its air quality targets. China’s Air Pollution Prevention and Control Action Plan (2013-2017) calls for reducing coal usage in the electricity sector, increasing the amount of renewable energy, and reducing levels of particulate matter in the air. Recognizing that China uses more energy per unit of GDP than most developed countries, Mr. Moskovitz calls for, “internalizing energy efficiency so that it’s a real investment opportunity for many businesses, including the power sector.” Reducing energy waste will help reduce the amount of pollution generated and reduce the need for new coal-fired power plants.
