EIA presents an alternative case to the International Energy Outlook 2021 (IEO2021) that assumes higher incomes in China relative to the Reference case. We maintain all other Reference case assumptions so that we can analyze the effects of wage changes in China absent any additional policies. We analyze the resulting impacts on China’s economy and trade and on energy consumption in China and other regions in this Issues in Focus article.

The full report is available on the EIA website.
