dc.description.abstractThis paper aims to examine the potential of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM)to address energy- related issues during the rural transition process in China, using acase study of quickly urbanizing and industrializing Yinzhou district in coastal Zhejiangprovince. Yinzhou?s per capita GDP reached US$ 3100 in 2002, three times China?saverage, and is targeted to achieve $10,000 in 2020.We assess the current energy status of Yinzhou, and provide projections of energyconsumption and CO2 emissions up to the year 2020. Energy resource shortages andlimited possibilities to obtain coal-fired electricity from national grid illustrate theopening gap between energy supply and demand. We find that Yinzhou?s CDMpotential is concentrated in efficiency improvement on the demand side. In that context,we suggest to systematically explore the CDM potential in the industrial sector. Projectswill have to involve many stakeholders and the necessary local capacity has to be built.These CDM projects can be considered as killing three birds with one stone, namelymaintaining continuous economic growth, alleviating local environmental pollution aswell as mitigating global climate change.en_US
