March 19, 2014 – Vancouver, BC – The Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada (APF Canada) invites media to attend an event with Amory Lovins, Co-Founder and Chief Scientist, Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) on the challenges and opportunities that China faces as it attempts to meet rising energy demands and reduce its carbon emissions.
Along with its Chinese and US partners, RMI is leading a collaborative project that will create a blueprint for maximizing China’s share of energy efficiency technologies and renewable energy supply through 2050. This unprecedented collaboration between the US and China – the world’s top economies, top consumers of energy and top emitters of CO2 – will profoundly impact the world’s environmental and energy future.
This event is an opportunity for media to learn about China-US collaboration on energy and environmental issues, and to interview experts on what it might mean for the world and for Canada.
