The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is one of the most significant infrastructural projects worldwide and a chance for the Chinese photovoltaic cells industry to scale up and expand into new markets. From 2000 to 2019, this industry became a global leader in capacity, export, employment and innovative technology implementation.
International Doctoral Seminar entitled “Sustainability in economics and management” at the Wroclaw University of Economics and Business was an amazing opportunity to deliver a lecture entitled “Chinese energy transition towards power generation from renewable energy sources in the years 2000 – 2019”. The event allowed me to present the results of the research conducted so far, with particular emphasis on the review and evaluation of individual policies that have shaped the process of energy transition in the PRC.
The 5th International APEEN conference (20-21.01.2021) on energy transformation and sustainable development was organized by the Portuguese Energy Economy Association under the patronage of CENSE and IAEE. Speech Fri “China harnesses the wind – Chinese policy towards wind power development from the new structural economics perspective” provided an opportunity for an intensive discussion with participants in this event on the transformation of the Chinese wind energy sector in the light of the assumptions of the new structural economy.
Finding good and creative research ideas is a challenge that I have tried to overcome from the beginning of my research career. The tools and techniques presented at the workshop organized by EIASM – European Institute for Advanced Studies in Management and the Academic Creativity Labs helped me significantly in my search for ways to pose appropriate research questions for my doctoral thesis.
