UK and China join forces to push low-carbon growth
The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) said on Monday 10 January that low-carbon growth was put firmly at the heart of UK-China relations during an inward visit by Chinese vice premier Li Keqiang. The department said the UK and China will collaborate on "energy markets and low-carbon technology" under a memorandum of understanding pledging to take forward agreements reached during last year's UK-China Summit. Energy and climate change secretary Chris Huhne said green growth would be "crucial for prosperity, the environment and for our energy security". DECC noted that a UK-China Low-carbon Co-operation Committee and Action Plan will be launched in spring 2011, which will examine: low-carbon planning; use of market mechanisms; and low-carbon standards.
