The Fifth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee laid out China’s plan for the 14th Five-Year Plan and its visions for 2035. Specific development requirements for energy, environment, ecology, and climate change were included. Most prominently, President Xi Jinping clearly stated China’s goals of achieving peak carbon emissions by 2030 and achieving carbon neutrality by 2060, staking out a clear path forward for China’s energy transition.
Building off of the remarkable accomplishments of the 13th Five-Year Plan, we should continue to implement a cap on total coal consumption during the 14th Five-Year Plan period, ensuring the prevention of a rebound in coal consumption, strengthening coal substitution, and promoting the efficient utilization of clean energy. In key regions we should further strengthen the coal cap and implement measures for high-quality development. In key sectors this should entail a combination of restricting new growth in coal consumption industry and reducing existing coal consumption in industry so as to promote the rapid adjustment of the energy structure. During the 14th Five-Year Plan period we should ensure that the share of coal in total energy consumption is reduced to below 50%, ensure that the goal of a fundamental improvement in air quality is achieved, strive to peak carbon emissions by around 2025, and ensure the realization of the Chinese government’s climate commitments.

China Energy Conservation Association (CECA) was founded in 1989, and was registered and approved by State Civil Ministry. CECA is a self-constrained, non-profit social entity. CECA devotes itself to efficient utilization of energy, environment protection and advancing economic profit, and helps to enhance the energy efficiency technology and energy efficiency products of China to a global advanced level. CECA obeys the leadership of National Development and Reform Commission, Science and Technology Ministry and General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of the PRC. CECA has many enterprise members.
Goals: The goals of CECA include promoting rational and efficient use of energy resources and improving the environment through research and implementation of energy-saving policies, developing and promoting energy-saving technologies and products, and collecting and disseminatingof energy-saving information.
Government service: CECA researches and publicizes state laws and regulations, disseminates energy-saving information, research national policies, etc.
Enterprise service: CECA establishes an information exchange platform for usage by enterprises.
Social service: CECA spreads energy-saving knowledge and improves energy-saving awareness for the whole society.
The China Coal Consumption Cap Plan and Policy Research Project (“Coal Cap Project”) was launched in October 2013 in close collaboration with over 20 renowned Chinese think tanks, research institutions, and industry associations. The project researches China’s coal consumption cap strategy and policy, implementation roadmap and action plan, and provides policy recommendations and actionable measures to government officials. The ultimate goal is to help China conserve resources, protect its environment, and achieve its climate change and sustainable development goals.
In 2014, the China Coal Cap Project completed the report on "The Long-Term Development Scenario and Outlook for China's Coal Consumption Cap (2015-2050)." In 2015, the Project published "China's 13th Five Year Coal Cap Action Plan Research Report." In 2016, the China Coal Cap Project will summarize and promote regional and sectoral best practices and experiences, advancing the implementation of coal strategies and policies.
The Project is funded by UK's Children’s Investment Fund Foundation, and is coordinated by the Natural Resources Defense Council and World Wide Fund for Nature.
