This book uses historical data from 1980 and alternative scenarios through 2020 to assess China's future energy requirements and the resources available to meet them. It finds that, shaped by established policies, current trends are putting China on an unsustainable and insecure energy growth path. Sustainability calls for persistence of effort, greater reliance on advanced energy technologies and better standards-enforcement.
