The world energy market is undergoing tremendous changes in terms of production and consumption, resulting in a new landscape of global energy security. At the same time, renewable energy, smart grids, and hydrogen energy will bring about a new energy geopolitical map. Under such circumstances, countries around the world should accelerate energy transition through innovations in production, consumption, technology, and institutions. They can leverage China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) to further the integration of Asian, European, and African energy markets and improve common energy security while circumventing potential risks. In China and Global Energy Security, the author argues that in the context of economic globalization, energy security is not an issue facing one single country alone but rather a global problem. China is the world’s largest energy producer and consumer, oil importer, and emitter of greenhouse gases; its energy policy and energy security have a worldwide impact. The abundant experience accumulated by China over the past years in improving global energy security, promoting cleaner energy, and mitigating global climate change will have significant implications for the rest of the world.
