China’s Search for Energy Security: Implications for U.S. Policy

Abstract China is rapidly emerging as a major force in both world energy markets and global energy geopolitics, and key aspects of China’s new global energy activities are creating new challenges for U.S.-China relations. This report examines China’s global search for energy security, draws implications for U.S. global energy and security interests, and recommends policies that will allow the United States to respond more effectively to China’s expanding global energy impact.
