Chai, Q.M. – Xu, H. Q. Modeling an emissions summit in China around 2030: synergies or compromises between the economy, energy and climate security. Adv. Clim. Wechsel Res. 5, 169-180 (2014). 3) Commitments with intensity targets. As in China and India, climate promises based on 2030 intensity targets generally correspond to an increase in emissions above current levels. These six commitments, which use intensity targets, are Malaysia, Tunisia, Uzbekistan and three high-income countries – Chile, Singapore and Uruguay.
WRI research shows that China can stabilize its carbon dioxide emissions by the early 2020s. This is a decade earlier than current trajectories and would bring China`s total non-carbon carbon dioxide emissions back to 2012 levels by 2030. Nearly 75% of the 184 commitments made by the Paris Agreement were deemed insufficient to slow climate change; Only 28 European Union countries and 7 other countries will reduce their emissions by at least 40% by 2030 Only the European Union (with its 28 Member States), one of the top five emitters of greenhouse gases with 9% of the world`s greenhouse gases, has been aggressive in the face of climate change. The EU is expected to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 58% from 1990 levels by 2030. As a result, the EU exceeds the EU`s obligation to have “at least 40 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions below 1990 levels”. The report considers that the EU`s promise is sufficient. Both the methods of expropriation of experts and the modelling of system dynamics yield results that indicate that China is expected to reach its peak as 2030 approaches. The modelling results are more optimistic, as they show that China could reach its peak well before 2030, when a majority of experts surveyed thought it would be difficult or easy for China to reach a peak well before the target date.
Both methods lead to results that imply that full implementation of the 20% non-fossil fuel target without additional effort will be a challenge for China (although the results of the modelling do not indicate a significant gap in the achievement of the objective, since full implementation of policies is adopted during modeling). The results of the expert survey show that several policy reforms are needed, including feed-in tariffs, the national emissions trading system and the energy sector reform process. The report concludes that China`s commitment is not enough to help reduce global emissions by 50% by 2030. Nineteen other countries and the EU have adopted a zero net emissions target, and more than 100 are considering it. Current targets cover a time range; Most countries refer to certain years between 2030 and 2050, while other countries, such as Singapore and Japan, use more general references to the second half of the century. The EU, which was the world`s third largest emitter before China`s announcement as the world`s largest jurisdiction (the world`s third largest emitter), has committed to achieving zero net greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The United States, which is currently the world`s second largest emitter and by far the most responsible for historical emissions, has no plan to announce long-term goals under this government. China has pledged to increase its CO2 emissions by 2030, with the best efforts to reach an early peak and reach 20% non-fossil energy as a primary energy share by 2030. These commitments were included in China`s national contribution to the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change. We develop and apply a mixed method to analyze the likelihood of a current Chinese policy of reducing greenhouse gas emissions, in line with China`s commitments in Paris. We note that China is likely to increase its emissions well before 2030 and achieve its non-fossil target, which will depend on the full and effective implementation of all current policies, the success of energy sector reform and the full implementation of a system
