Clean Tech & Energy


InterChina has been consulting in the Clean Tech & Energy Sector since its gradual opening to foreign investment and we have participated in the rapid evolution of the sector. This puts us in a unique position and allows us to deliver unmatched value to our Clean Tech & Energy Sector clients today.

Given the requirements of China's sustainable economic development, characterized by booming demand (for renewables and the upgrade of traditional resources) and its dynamic regulatory environment, China's Clean Tech & Energy sector poses challenges & opportunities for multinationals in China. Multinationals that have entered China or plan to do so, face high-priority issues to be successful:

  • Growth Strategy: In the context of China's challenging market and regulatory environment, do we adopt an organic entry/expansion strategy, or do we grow via acquisition?
  • Navigating a Dynamic Policy Environment: How do we create business opportunities in China's dynamic regulatory environment, which continues to evolve with or lag behind China's Clean Tech & Energy sector.
  • Partnership Strategy: As one of the factors required for being successful in China is navigating through uncertainties, which partners might be available for our business development in China, and how can a platform be developed satisfying the mutual interests of both parties?
  • Impact On Global Strategy: What could be the role of China in our global strategy? It may not only be about how to leverage China as a market, a production base, and/or a sourcing base, but also how to seek cooperation with Chinese companies in an MNC's home market and how to preempt the future threat of Chinese competitors against our global business?

InterChina has accumulated over 10 years of experience in China's Clean Tech & Energy sectors with proven methodologies to help our clients' business in China and globally. Our work covers various sectors and along the value chain.

  • Wide Scope of Sectors: Our intensive project experience started in the traditional energy sector in the late 1990s, and developed further into clean tech sectors in the 2000s, including renewable energy (PV, wind, hydro, and biomass etc.), electric vehicles and,environmental protection (water treatment, waste treatment, environment technology and chemicals etc.).
  • Various Parts Along The Value Chain: Our diversified client base includes clean tech project developers and operators (e.g. renewable energy farms, hydro projects, and water treatment BOT etc.), manufacturers (e.g. wind turbine, PV cell/module, and wafer etc.), component suppliers (e.g. inverter, gearbox, and control system etc.), other raw material suppliers (e.g. water treatment chemicals).
  • Client Base: InterChina has worked with established incumbents such as diversified energy suppliers, and leading water and waste utility companies. InterChina has also worked extensively with emerging companies with proven capabilities and leading technologies in this highly challenging industry.
