The National Energy Commission (NEC; simplified Chinese: 国家能源委员会; traditional Chinese: 國家能源委員會會; pinyin: guó​jiā ​néng​yuán ​wěi​yuán​huì​) is a newly established agency to coordinate the overall energy policies for the People's Republic of China. The body will include 23 members from other agencies such as environment, finance, central bank, National Development and Reform Commission.[1]

The purpose of this new commission is to draft a new energy development strategy, evaluate energy security and coordinate international cooperation on climate change, carbon reduction and energy efficiency.[2]



China had a Ministry of Energy established in 1988 but it was disbanded five years after its portfolio overlapped with existing ministries.[3]

In 2003, National Energy Bureau was created under the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) which reports to the Chinese State Council, which has broad administrative and planning control over energy in the Chinese economy.[4]

In 2008, National Energy Administration (NEA) was established but lacked power to carry out its tasks because the energy sector management was spread between various agencies.[5]

China has experienced power outages, concerns of growing imported energy demands, energy security and challenges coordinating energy supply and demand.[6]
