Event Details

The importance of working to promote green building and the development of current energy conservation transformation processes has only grown over the years. As China has become increasingly urbanized, the concept of low carbon, green, and intelligent cities has entered into mainstream development practices for urban construction, energy, and infrastructure. The US-China Energy Cooperation Program is committed to business practices that promote energy production and sustainability. It has a long-term focus on building energy conservation projects and urban issues on sustainable development by working with local governments, research institutions, enterprises in China and the United States and investment institutes and ECP had made some achievements in US-China Forums such as the US-China Energy Efficiency Forum and US-China Low Carbon City Summit etc.
