王铮

王峥,博士。 来自北京大学,对能源的兴趣是他童年的一部分。 他成长于中国陕西延安,东汉时期(公元32年左右)有“水能烧(油)”的记载,中国第一口油井于1905年在郑氏国小修筑。 “在成长过程中,我与燃料和能源有着密切的接触,这让我对能源在工业发展和社会经济进步中的作用,以及能源作为当地政府主要收入来源之一的作用有了一定的认识, ”铮解释道。 “这让我对能源在社会经济中的真正作用感到好奇。” 随着家乡向风能和太阳能等可再生能源转型,铮亲眼目睹了能源在社会中的角色转变。 他计划在哈佛继续他的可再生能源研究。 他首先计划计算中国陆上和海上风电在不同时间(2030年、2060年)不同场景(如并网、多样化储能)下的容量潜力。 他将利用这些数据探索不同海拔高度风电的效率和经济成本,并比较中国风电和光伏的成本。 铮还计划将气候变化模型和陆面模型模拟结合起来,考虑计算不同地区风-光-储系统长期储能的容量需求。

This paper provides retrospective firm-level evidence on the effectiveness of China’s carbon market pilots in reducing emissions in the electricity sector. We show that the carbon emission trading system (ETS) has no effect on changing coal efficiency of regulated coal- fired power plants. Although we find a significant reduction in coal consumption associated with ETS participation, this reduction was achieved by reducing electricity production. The output contraction in the treated plants is not due to their optimizing behavior but is likely driven by government decisions, because the impacts of emission permits on marginal costs are small relative to the controlled electricity prices and the reduction is associated with financial losses. In addition, we find no evidence of carbon leakage to other provinces, but a significant increase in the production of non-coal-fired power plants in the ETS regions.

Jinzhao Yang, Yu Zhao, Jing Cao, and Chris P. Nielsen. 2021. “Co-benefits of carbon and pollution control policies on air quality and health till 2030 in China.” Environment International, 152, 2021. Publisher's VersionAbstract
Facing the dual challenges of climate change and air pollution, China has made great efforts to explore the co-control strategies for the both. We assessed the benefits of carbon and pollution control policies on air quality and human health, with an integrated framework combining an energy-economic model, an air quality model and a concentration–response model. With a base year 2015, seven combined scenarios were developed for 2030 based on three energy scenarios and three end-of-pipe control ones. Policy-specific benefits were then evaluated, indicated by the reduced emissions, surface concentrations of major pollutants, and premature deaths between scenarios. Compared to the 2030 baseline scenario, the nationwide PM2.5- and O3-related mortality was expected to decline 23% or 289 (95% confidence interval: 220–360) thousand in the most stringent scenario, and three quarters of the avoided deaths were attributed to the end-of-pipe control measures. Provinces in heavily polluted and densely populated regions would benefit more from carbon and pollution control strategies. The population fractions with PM2.5 exposure under the national air quality standard (35 μg/m3) and WHO guideline (10 μg/m3) would be doubled from 2015 to 2030 (the most stringent scenario), while still very few people would live in areas with the WHO guideline achieved for O3 (100 μg/m3). Increased health impact of O3 suggested a great significance of joint control of PM2.5 and O3 in future policy-making.
