Barry Naughton (Sokwanlok Chair of Chinese International Affairs at the School of Global Policy and Strategy, UCSD) and I kicked off the U. of Albany Confucius Institute Fall 2020 Seminar Series on “US-China Relations in the 21st Century” with a discussion about industrial policy and low-carbon energy technologies in China. In his presentation titled, “China’s Industrial Policy: New Technological Revolution or Old-fashioned Protectionism?”, Professor Naughton highlighted some of the recent major technology and industrial policy changes under President Xi and the implications for the U.S. In my talk titled, “China’s key role in scaling low carbon energy technologies,” I discussed the critical role China has played in scaling up the mass production of low-carbon energy technologies, such as solar photovoltaic cells and lithium-ion batteries, highlighting key points from my related paper in Science with Jonas Nahm.
