EU-China Energy Cooperation Platform was launched on 15 May 2019, to support the implementation of activities announced in the "Joint Statement on the Implementation of EU-China Energy Cooperation". The overall objective of ECECP is to enhance EU-China cooperation on energy. In line with the EU's Green Deal, Energy Union, the Clean Energy for All European initiative, the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the EU's Global Strategy, this enhanced cooperation will help increase mutual trust and understanding between EU and China and contribute to a global transition towards clean energy on the basis of a common vision of a sustainable, reliable and secure energy system. ECECP is implemented by a consortium led by ICF, jointly with Energy Research Institute of National Development and Reform Commission and China Energy Conservation and Environment Protection Consulting; policy steering is by the EU (DG ENER) and the China National Energy Administration.
