Our China Practice

Our China practice analyzes the economic and policy dynamics of the world’s second-largest economy, with a focus on implications for business and government decision-makers. We apply a holistic approach to this work, reconciling industry-level and macroeconomic trends, commercial imperatives, and national security considerations. Analytical rigor and independence have made Rhodium Group the premier global research firm focused on China’s economy.

Our team of economists, data scientists, and policy analysts based in the United States, Asia, and Europe prides itself on identifying trade and investment trends and emerging policy debates before they become mainstream. Our work is based on decades of experience building proprietary datasets on Chinese investment patterns, tracking Beijing’s policy direction, and analyzing China’s financial drivers.

Rhodium Group supports the public sector, corporate leadership, and institutional investors’ strategy and decision-making with deep and actionable analysis of China’s economy and its global interactions. Our thought leadership work with philanthropies and think tanks has been a foundational part of Rhodium’s mission since its founding in 2008.

Our Energy & Climate Practice

Our Energy & Climate practice analyzes the effects of policy and market developments on greenhouse gas emissions and energy systems, and provides actionable information about the impacts of climate change. Our interdisciplinary team includes policy experts, economic analysts, energy modelers, data engineers, and climate scientists.

Governments and businesses around the world are making commitments to achieve net-zero emissions in order to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, but on-the-ground action is lagging. Rhodium’s Energy & Climate practice helps public and private decision-makers understand what kind of climate future we are on track for, and what matters most for reducing greenhouse gas emissions—at the local, state, national, and international levels. By combining policy expertise with a suite of detailed energy-economic models, our research provides unique, data-driven insights into the impacts of energy and climate change policy and real-world developments on greenhouse gas emissions, energy markets, economic output, and clean technology pathways.

In addition to our analysis of policy and other developments, we are a leading source of holistic energy and climate datasets and services that enable informed decision-making. The ClimateDeck data platform, a partnership of Rhodium Group and Breakthrough Energy, provides detailed global, US, and 50-state greenhouse gas emissions inventory data, and emissions and energy forecasts under different pathways. The Clean Investment Monitor, a partnership of Rhodium Group and MIT’s Center for Energy and Environmental Policy Research, tracks public and private investments in climate technologies in the US and provides insights into investment trends and on-the-ground progress in the US towards net-zero emissions.

Rhodium is a founding partner of the Climate Impact Lab, a collaboration of research institutions combining climate science, econometrics, and big data analytics to advance understanding of the real-world impacts and economic costs of climate change. The Climate Impact Lab leverages an evidence-based, data-driven approach to quantify these impacts sector-by-sector and community-by-community, and makes that research available to decision-makers and regulators around the world.
