In the article, titled “Pushing out or pulling in? The determinants of Chinese energy finance in developing countries,” Gallagher and coauthors Zhongshu Li, Xu Chen, Jiahai Yu, and Denise L. Mauzeralle examine a number of “push factors” – incentives in China that facilitate investment abroad -and “pull factors” – incentives in recipient countries that facilitate Chinese investment into their country. Due to the impact on climate emissions future energy investments could have, the researchers argue it is crucial to substantially slow or even halt Chinese foreign direct investments and development finance contributions to new carbon-intensive power projects overseas.
