Our panelists bring to the table expert knowledge and rich discussion to an otherwise "dry" topic. They include: Dr. Pei Liu, who has just completed a BP-commissioned two-year study on the water footprint of China’s coal supply chain; Dr. Yajun Tian from Shenhua’s National Institute of Clean-and-Low-Carbon Energy who will provide insight into China’s rapidly expanding coal-to-chemicals industries; and Kevin Jianjun Tu from the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, who will close out the panel with a discussion of how China is likely to increase dependence on coal imports to satisfy the domestic and shortages caused by water and other constraints.


• Pei Liu, BP-Clean Energy Centre

• Yajun Tian, Shenhua’s National Institute of Clean-and-Low-Carbon Energy
