People's Republic of China: Status and Potential for the Development of Biofuels and Rural Renewable Energy
This study aims to better understand biofuel development in the People's Republic of China. It assesses the implications of the biofuel program on food prices, crop diversification, land-use patterns, and farm restructuring.
The economy of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) has grown remarkably since economic reforms were initiated in 1978. Rapid economic growth led to a rapid rise in demand for energy, which also raised concerns about national energy security. It is a goal of this study to derive policy implications for the future development of biofuels in the country.
This report is part of the Greater Mekong Subregion: Status and Potential for the Development of Biofuels and Rural Renewable Energy series.
