The Chinese government has shown its commitment to solving future energy problems by sponsoring a group of investors to tour renewable energy sector facilities in UK. As part of the tour the group visited JET for a taste of energy research.

“The members of the delegation are very excited to see JET, as we know the EU is a pioneer in energy development,” said Wang Rui, from the Investment Promotion Agency of China’s Ministry of Commerce. With the aim of informing investors about best practice renewable energy development the Agency also organised for the delegation to visit sites such as wind farms and tidal energy facilities.

“It’s common sense to find a new, renewable response to climate change, so we have a lot of initiatives to promote more investment in this area,” said Mr Wang. “The Ministry would welcome more opportunities to cooperate with the UK and the EU in this area.”
