China is both the largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world and the country with the greatest challenge to constrain the level of its emissions. The way in which energy is governed in China is an important factor driving its rising level of carbon dioxide emissions. Andrews-Speed analyses the nature of energy governance in China by combining ideas relating to transition management with the theories of new institutional economics and historical institutionalism. This provides a framework for examining the institutions of energy governance and for identifying factors which assist or constrain the country's path to a low-carbon economy. The author emphasises the importance of elaborating the adaptive capacity of these institutions.
