About ERI


The Energy Research Institute (ERI) of the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) was established in 1980. It is a national research organization conducting comprehensive studies on China’s energy issues. Since its establishment, it has been affiliated with the former State Commission and the former State Economic Commission. Throughout the institute’s existence, the Chinese Academy of Sciences has guided many aspects of its research work. In 1988, ERI was placed under the administration of the now former State Planning Commission. Further reforms in 2003 made ERI part of the National Development and Reform Commission. The institute is also one of seven research institutes administrated by the Academy of Macro-economic Research (AMR) of the NDRC.

The scope of research conducted by ERI covers the fields of energy production, distribution, and consumption. The main focus is on soft scientific studies in the fields of energy economy, energy efficiency, energy and the environment, and renewable energy.
