PRC: Proposed Amendments to Energy Conservation Law

China enacted the Energy Conservation Law in 1997 to govern the use of energy resources, promote energy saving and protect the environment.

To further reduce the use of energy, the National People’s Congress in June 2007 began deliberating draft amendments to the Law. The proposed amendments are extensive. In particular, they set out regulations to reduce energy consumption in various sectors including construction projects, the transportation sector and in government buildings. They also deal with measures to improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
