The way in which energy is governed in China is driving its rising level of carbon dioxide emissions. This book analyses the nature of energy governance in China by combining ideas relating to transition management with institutionalist theories, which helps to identify factors which assist or constrain the country's path to a low-carbon economy.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book can be viewed as an initial effort to re-orientate research focused on China's energy and environmental future." - The China Journal

"Professor Philip Andrews?Speed has produced a valuable book . . . the author's synthesis brings important dimensions to bear on crucial questions such as the implementation gap in carbon emission reductions, the curious lack of coordination of transport and construction projects with energy policies, and the weakness of relevant independent regulatory agencies vis?a?vis big companies and local officials." - Oil, Gas & Energy Law Intelligence

"Andrews-Speed's conclusions are supported convincingly by the analysis and case studied . . . He illustrates vividly the constraints facing China's transition to a lowcarbon economy and provides valuable information and insights both for scholars of Chinese and international climate politics and policy and for a broader audience." - Environmental Politics

"In this book, Philip Andrews-Speed makes a major contribution to our understanding of the trajectory of the energy sector in China and the problems in the way of its moving towards a low-carbon model.' - The China Quarterly
