Reviews

Reviews of the original Chinese edition:
"The publication of Reflection on China's Energy Issues has had a strong repercussion among the students and researchers of our university. It gives a profound and comprehensive analysis of the energy challenges we face today. Mr Jiang is both erudite and sharp at the latest trends of global development. He sets forth the direction of China's energy strategy - "a new energy development path with Chinese characteristics", in which China will strive to build a high-tech oriented energy-efficient society with low emission and environmental impact, as well as a secure energy system. The essay will surely have a long last impact on China's energy-related policy making." --Prof Huang Zhen, Director of the Institute of Energy Research, Shanghai Jiaotong University

"Jiang's analysis highlights the necessity and importance of developing large scale nuclear power in China. According to him, "new energy sources must have a low carbon or non-carbon profile, and nuclear power is a key point in the overall energy strategy. In the long term, it is set to become an important energy source in China, probably on the scale of trillion kWs." He also stresses nuclear safety, technology innovation, recycling and attracting talents, all of which are indispensable in the development of nuclear power in China." --Prof Zheng Jianchao, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering

"Reflection on China's Energy Issues is more than just an academic paper. It is a survey with grand historical and global vision, on a topic of enormous influence on today's world and our sustainable development in the future. As he puts it, "resource-saving should become a fundamental national policy." His elaboration on Energy-saving, high-efficiency, plural development, advanced technology, environmental-friendly and international cooperation will serve as an important guidance for China's energy strategy and planning." --Mr Zhang Baoguo, Bureau Chief, National Bureau of Energy
