The Berkeley Tsinghua Joint Research Center on Energy and Climate Change will conduct targeted outreach activities to key Chinese decision makers to share research results, best practices, and case studies on clean energy and climate change mitigation, ensuring that decision makers at the highest levels of China’s government have robust knowledge of the most cutting-edge, innovative policies and programs. 

The BTJRC will convene the world’s leading researchers, policy makers, and practitioners for an annual Berkeley-Tsinghua Energy Forum to highlight research results and serve as a forum to cross-fertilize new interdisciplinary ideas to support China’s transition to a clean energy economy.  

Berkeley-Tsinghua Energy Forum

This annual forum, held at Tsinghua University, provides a venue for researchers from the three participating institutions (Berkeley Lab, UC Berkeley, and Tsinghua University), as well as guests from other research institutions, government agencies, and foundations, to discuss key energy-related issues. 

Policy Briefings

In addition to the annual Energy Forum, the BTJRC will also host periodic policy briefings and workshops on emerging research and best practices on policy and technology solutions.
