U.S.-China Renewable Energy Partnership

The U.S.-China Renewable Energy Partnership (USCREP) brings together technical, academic, business, and government stakeholders from the United States and China to address barriers to renewable energy development.

USCREP was created nearly a decade ago as a part of a broader package of cooperative clean energy programs between the two countries. Both sides embraced a vision of the United States and China as leaders in the global transition to a clean energy economy.


Both countries aggregate technical and analytical resources from both countries in these four areas:

  • Policy, planning, and coordination
  • Grid integration
  • Standards and certification
  • Renewable energy technology.

USCREP partners include leading government agencies, research institutions, organizations, and companies in the United States and China.

U.S.-China Renewable Energy Industries Forum

Every other year USCREP convenes the U.S.-China Renewable Energy Industry Forum (REIF), a public-private event to advance energy collaboration between the two countries. The next REIF is slated for 2019. If you are interested in participating, please email contacts below.

Learn more about REIF.


USCREP analyses and reports have helped inform renewable energy targets, tariff policies, and standards and codes development. USCREP findings support the case for use of the most innovative technologies and solutions. This has helped bolster the deployment of technologies and led to commercial opportunities between the two countries.
