China is facing its own energy crisis, which is causing the prices of utilities to also spike — as such, Global X has a pair of ETFs that investors will want to watch.

“China’s curbs on carbon-intensive industries and the ensuing energy crisis have scrambled supply and demand calculations for some of the world’s key commodities, sending prices on a wild ride that market players say may not yet be over,” a Nikkei Asia article said.

In the meantime, the Global X MSCI China Utilities ETF (CHIU) is up 26% the past few months while the Global X MSCI China Energy ETF (CHIE) has risen by 24%. Year-to-date gains are also strong for both funds, with the former at 55% and the latter at almost 40%.
