This chapter examines the status of and the opportunities emanating from the unique and decisive relationship between the United States and China on energy and climate. It also offers recommendations for expanded U.S.–China cooperation on clean energy in order to advance the global transition to a low-carbon economy. As the top two countries in terms of energy consumption globally, China and the U.S. play an important role in the geopolitics of energy as well as climate change mitigation. Their cooperation is crucial in two specific instances: it would trigger the potential for a scale of deployment of wind turbine technology within the two countries that would result in substantial technology cost reductions globally; and that their advances in technology are crucial to climate change mitigation as their developments can serve as a model for other nations to follow in developing clean wind energy.

Keywords:   United States, China, wind energy, climate change, U.S.–China cooperation, energy consumption, low-carbon company, climate change mitigation
