The Committee of 100 (C100) was formed in June 1989 by a group of Chinese-Americans, many of them leading figures, to start a dialogue on how to save US-China relations. Fifty to sixty people assembled at the studio of I.M. Pei to devise a strategy. Six key people outlined the principles and goals of the organization. Henry S. Tang was one of them.
Wu Changhua talks about China’s green energy policies, including solar and bio fuels, as well as standards and technologies implemented to make traditional sources more efficient.
She also discusses how China’s photovoltaic (PV) cell industry depends heavily on the international markets, and suffered when the financial crisis shrank the demand for solar PV cells on a global scale. This pushed the government to implement measures to build the local market and secure the survival of the local solar PV industry.
