Wang Zhixuan is a prime facilitator in the construction of China’s nationwide carbon market. As vice chairman of the China Electricity Council, the major trade group for China’s electricity companies, Wang has spent years, working closely with EDF, to ready the power sector to participate in China’s national emissions trading system, expected to become the world’s largest. The goal is to reduce China’s climate pollution while supporting low-carbon economic growth.
