Four O’Clock Forum: China’s Growth, Energy Needs and Business Plan
Trevor Houser speaks at the World Affairs Council’s Four O’Clock Forum on China’s energy consumption. The session, moderated by John Cohn of Thompson & Knight LLP, also featured as a speaker Lisa Zeng Sommer from Economides Consultants.
Over the last decade, China has emerged as the world’s largest energy consumer. China’s energy profile provides a window into its economic soul. It tells us much about what China does, how fast it is doing it, and how efficiently. If we want to influence China’s energy profile, we must understand what kind of development is driving China’s growth, where they seek energy and how they do business.
