The 2015 Pacific Energy Summit is now in its final day in Beijing. Friday's session focuses on topics such as technology and policy to improve coal use, as well as clean air policies, and building a resilient global oil market.
The three-day event aims to explore innovative solutions to the dual challenges of rising energy demand, and a changing climate. It has attracted around two hundred leaders from government, business, and research organizations.
The National Energy Administration says China's energy use has entered a period of medium to low growth, as the economy heads towards a more sustainable model.
But the country's primary energy consumption is expected to expand by an average 3.4 percent annually for the next five years, no doubt increasing demand in China for coal and oil, as well as new energy.
