A critical issue for any utility sector in transition is pricing risk. The Chinese power sector can be referenced as a case in point: the government has spent much of the past 10 years formulating a more transparent and realistic pricing regime and while much progress has been made, sector returns have often been unpredictable, in large part due to a reluctance to pass on higher capital and fuel costs to consumers. China first began pricing water in 1985, and in the initial years Beijing directed water-pricing policy. More recently, this has come under the authority of provincial price bureaus, which approve and implement all ...

The challenge of China's green technology policy « Climate Progress
I would like to close with an observation that I gained from watching World Cup soccer over the past few weeks. In particular, I was struck by the recurring juxtaposition of two advertising billboards in the background of the soccer pitch, one in red by an American company—McDonald’s, the other in blue by a Chinese company—Yingli Solar. I thought to myself, this is the World Cup, the world’s biggest sporting stage, and China is proudly showcasing the future of its economy with a solar technology company. What is the U.S. best able to showcase? Hamburgers. I believe this image speaks volumes about the state of play not ... market research, surveys and trends
CIV FI » Avoiding Global Deflation
that reminds us the commercial real estate bubble hasn’t gone anywhere. And if you count the vacant windows in the strip malls, it isn’t hard to see the reality. Daly goes further, and in nearly 3,000 words of commentary, quotes, captions and attributions, and over a dozen charts, explains that commercial real estate loans generally have five year maturities, and the ones negotiated during the bubble boom are coming due starting in 2011. Daly also observes that the ultimate victims this time will be the 8,000+ community banks, not the big banks and Wall St. firms. Among Daly’s conclusions as to the deflationary ... market research, surveys and trends

World's Top Energy Officials Start Search for Clean-Tech Cash
Government ministers and corporate executives from more than 20 countries are gathering in Washington, D.C., this week to accelerate the deployment of clean-energy technologies to mitigate climate change. The big question heading into the Clean Energy Ministerial is whether the United States, Germany and other major economies -- which collectively invested almost $200 billion in "green" economic stimulus projects since late 2008 -- have the stomach for more spending in the face of rising debt. "How do we expand the clean-energy revolution in a time of long-term fiscal constraints? Well, R&D is a very low-cost, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Good Cop, Bad Cop: the Evolving Form of Business-NGO Partnerships in China
A recent trip to China to speak at the Annual Summit of China Green Companies revealed an interesting tension between NGOs, businesses, and the Chinese government: everyone agrees that better policing of environmental performance is needed. But no one can agree on exactly how this should be accomplished. As the country takes steps toward sustainable policies and practices in the wake of explosive economic growth and industrialization, this tension could turn into a good cop/bad cop act on the world's stage. To understand how sustainability will play out in China, we first have to understand how these three ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Is homeshoring the solution for public sector cost savings ...
The UK government, desperate to cut costs, is talking about relocating 15,000 London-based office workers to less expensive areas of the country. Would either insourced or outsourced homeshoring be a more efficient way of doing this? Cost savings through homeshoring are likely to amount to 20% or more of fully associated costs. Could the same be achieved through relocation? Clearly there is a major cultural barrier to overcome with homeshoring. But have we reached the critical pain threshold where innovative models can be considered? Offshoring may be a more cost effective alternative. However cost savings may be negated through ...
