China-LAC Energy Cooperation
This paper conducts research on China's current policy support and Latin American and Caribbean countries' (LAC) energy mix background, as well as the environmental impact of traditional energy. China launched a plan entitled the China-Latin American and Caribbean Countries Cooperation Plan (2015-2019) several years ago, demonstrating its ambition to cooperate with LAC countries, especially in the energy and natural resources sector. Although LAC countries have experienced rapid development in the renewable energy sector in recent years, it still has a relatively large share of traditional non-renewable energy in its energy mix. In the last decades, China invested more and more in LAC in the energy sector. However, cooperation still needs to be enhanced in the renewable energy sector.
