China's GDP and energy demand decoupling: temporary or structural?


China's GDP and energy demand decoupling: temporary or structural?

Report summary

China is in a key phase of transition. In 2014, the relationship between GDP growth and energy demand growth diverged sharply. While GDP grew by 7.4%, power demand expanded by only 3.8% and diesel demand actually contracted for the first time in a decade. One of the most critical questions now facing global energy markets is whether this decoupling is temporary or structural?
