JUCCCE's leadership team was instrumental in producing the MIT Forum on the Future of Energy in China in 2008, which became one of the first public dialogues between China and US government on clean energy.
Finding the Key to Tackling Energy Deficit
The JUCCCE China Energy Forums provided a bridge between leaders from around the world and China’s own leaders to discuss clean energy and sustainability issues. Through the 5 forums that we hosted over a period of 5 years, we facilitated a series of conversations on clean energy and strategies for its implementation in China.
Our Energy Forums were the first of their kind and inspired attendees to use their influence and further spread the clean energy solutions promoted and developed in our forums. In the words of Marty Scholbauer, the Executive Director of the US DOE in China, forum attendees “agreed that [our] format was perfect for this event… we should all follow [JUCCCE’s] lead in adopting similar formats”. Further, David Cheng of Cleantech Group said, “I thought the Forum was well-organized and... really highlighted collaboration and conversation. Your ability to have Chinese nationals and non-Mandarin speaking Westerners engage in thoughtful debate is a master stroke."
The forums also represented an important opportunity for global leaders to introduce and unveil new clean energy initiatives in the presence of fellow influencers. The China Energy Blueprint and China mayoral training program were both initiated at the China Energy Forums.
