Can China switch away from coal to gas in the captive power sector?


Can China switch away from coal to gas in the captive power sector?

Report summary

China's air pollution challenges are well documented. In an attempt to tackle the crisis, the central government released the Air Pollution Prevention and Control Action Plan (APPCAP) in September 2013 setting national-level targets for air quality and emissions control. This was subsequently followed by provincial and municipal government targets through their own APPCAPs.
