Prof. Dai has been extensively engaged in research and pioneering work in energy economics, energy development strategies and energy planning, as well as analysis of efficiency in energy systems and energy management information systems. He is a well-known energy expert and scholar within China, with occasional appearances on CCTV forums, press briefings, People’s Daily’s “Strong Country” forums, and interviews by foreign media outlets. In recent years, he has been engaged as an editor-in-chief of published books, including 6 educational resources, and more than 30 publications as newspaper articles in overseas newspaper and magazine columns, and and has been awarded with many improvement awards from the Chinese Central Government.

His recent research projects include the pathways and measures in realising the target in 20% reduction of energy intensity, the sustainable energy outlook for China in 2020/2030/2050, China’s medium to long term energy development strategy, electricity structure reform and demand-side management policies, medium to long term energy conservation plans, China’s greenhouse gas reduction potential and measure, and China’s energy conservation system transformation.




The Asian Energy Studies Centre (AESC) held a full day of events, featuring a public seminar and an internal research meeting between scholars from the Energy Research Institute of the National Development and Reform Commission (ERI) and AESC research fellows. These events strengthened AESC’s role as a hub for sustainable energy research on the Asian region, with emphasis on China’s emerging practices and developments in coming years and decades.

Prof. Dai Yande, ERI deputy director and research professor, spoke on the “13th Five-Year Plan on Energy Development: Challenges and Prospects” at Seminar No. 4 of the Energy Research Seminar Series. More than 30 people from utility companies, consultancy firms, non-governmental organizations, businesses, and academia attended this seminar.

Prof. Dai argued that the monumental challenges China currently faces such as the degradation of land, air, and water, will fundamentally need to be solved through low-carbon energy development. The 13th Five-Year Plan in Energy Development would set targets that will eventually facilitate China’s transition to sustainable development towards 2050, and begin to address the forecasted increases in energy demand, while at the same time drastically reduce energy intensity and spur economy growth.

Scholars from ERI and AESC’s research fellows also showcased their respective research projects and discussed potential opportunities for future collaboration on sustainable energy research. Potential projects would be further developed into proposal applications to be submitted in early to mid-2016. This meeting and potential partnership is a major development in AESC and HKBU’s research networks in sustainable energy research in China and on the Asia region.
