China Renewable Energy and Sustainable Development Report: February 2008

As China’s appetite for energy continues to grow, so too does its implementation of renewable energy. The country’s wind, biomass and solar industries are moving at an impressive pace — officials are planning to generate roughly 120,000 megawatts (MW) from renewable resources by 2020.

The monthly China Renewable Energy and Sustainable Development Report from China Strategies, LLC covers the latest political, financial and technological developments in China’s rapidly growing renewable energy industries. The report examines the month’s activities for policy makers, non-governmental organizations, companies doing business in China, and other interested parties.

In the February edition of the China Report, author Lou Schwartz writes about China’s State Electricity Regulatory Commission releasing documents the extent of disruption that the weather disaster of January and February 2008 caused as well as a look at the status of the various renewable energy industries in the country.
