China – US Cooperation on clean energy

From Nov. 8 to Nov. 10, 2017, U.S. President Donald Trump paid an official visit to China. During Trump's visit, the two countries signed investment deals worth more than 250 billion U.S. dollars, involving the Belt and Road Initiative, energy, the chemical industry, environmental protection, smart cities and other fields. Among those deals, petrochemical contracts alone reached hundreds of billions of yuan. Both China and the U.S. agreed that a better future could only be achieved through win-win cooperation, setting the tone for the future development of China-US relations.

However, in early 2017, after Trump was elected as president of the United States, the energy and climate policies of the United States was comprehensively adjusted. This adjustment exerted a huge impact on not only the U.S., but also the global energy structure. Therefore, the current Sino-U.S. cooperation on energy is encountered with both opportunities and challenges.

Faced with a series of adjustments to the energy and climate policies under the Trump administration, what will the China-US cooperation on energy be like in the future? How can China and the U.S. address the challenges to their cooperation on global climate change?
