Dr. Lin Zhang was invited to be a speaker for the IAEE podcast series

Dr. Lin Zhang, Assistant Professor, was invited to be a speaker for the IAEE podcast series of International Association of Energy Economics. In the podcast, he gave a talk on “COVID19 is changing the emission trajectories in China and at global level”. The outbreak of coronavirus and its associated quarantine policy have lowered China's carbon emissions by over 184 million tons per month. Such reduction is expected to persist in the long run through structural change of energy mix and the digitalization of its economy. We shall work together and turn the current health crisis into an opportunity for mitigating climate change.
