China's Global Energy Finance by Pitch Interactive

Since 2000, China has provided upwards of $160 billion in development finance to the energy sector for foreign governments across the globe. To understand the scope and breadth of these investments, we worked with Boston University’s Global Economic Governance Initiative to create an interactive visualization–The China Global Energy Database–that allows you to explore China’s investments around the world.

We approached this project with the aim of allowing researchers, economists, journalists and the general public to explore the many different perspectives of the investments. Choose either a global, country-by-country view or explore by global energy source/lender investments and then drill down to see how regions and countries vary in the type of investments. Each investment is documented by projects which are listed in detail by clicking into any country, energy source, energy sub-sector or lender.
