The US-China Program (USCP) of the American Council On Renewable Energy (ACORE) and the Chinese Renewable Energy Industries Association (CREIA) have released the summer 2011 edition of the US-China Quarterly Market Review (QMR).
The QMR provides analysis on the renewable energy market, finance and policy developments for the second quarter of this year (Q2 2011) as seen in the two major renewable energy hubs in the world, and also provides an update on collaboration between the two countries.
The QMR is designed as a resource for companies and individuals seeking to navigate and succeed in the U.S. and China's renewable energy markets. The QMR breaks down the array of activities in the field of renewable energy, with foresight on what is expected to happen in the midst of recent financial and regulatory uncertainties.
Topics covered in the QMR include the following:
– Recent developments in Chinese foreign investment policymaking and how clean energy companies backed by foreign investors will benefit;
– The projected impact of recently updated transmission regulations on the market integration of renewable energy resources in the U.S.;
– The newly established venture capital and private-equity fund structures designated for cleantech investments in China and how foreign firms can make use of them;
– China's 12th five-year plan requirement for a dramatic increase in nuclear energy alongside renewables to meet non-fossil energy goals, despite the Fukushima disaster;
– An update on financial markets in the U.S. and an overview of financing trends for each renewable energy sector; and
– Sub-national government collaboration between the U.S. and China and a listing of significant collaborations between U.S. and Chinese companies that are driving forward renewable energy development.
