Australian Minister Visits China for Focus on Renewable Energy

In light of the fact that “demand for energy in China is already enormous and is growing by 9.5 percent every year,” is no secret to the renewable energy world, the Australian Minister for the Environment and Heritage, Senator Ian Campbell, is delivering his country’s solutions in wind power, biomass technology and solar energy.

In October, Campbell will lead Australia’s largest-ever renewable energy and energy efficiency trade mission to China. He plans to help Australian renewable energy industry interests establish high-level contacts with business and government representatives in China. Plus, he said engaging China in practical climate change action had long been a priority for the Australian Government. “It is currently the world’s second largest producer of greenhouse gas emissions and those emissions are also growing by almost 3 percent a year,” explained Campbell. “This, combined with severe environmental pollution issues, means China is looking to the renewable sector to play a key role in meeting its future energy needs and is seeking Australian expertise in areas such as wind, biomass and solar energy.” Speaking at the Australian Business Council for Sustainable Energy’s annual conference in Brisbane this week, Campbell said, “The strong relationship we have built with China under the Australia-China Climate Change Partnership is not only paying off in terms of government-to-government climate change cooperation, it is helping to provide new opportunities for industry. This relationship is being further consolidated through the work of the Asia-Pacific Partnership on Clean Development and Climate.” Senator Campbell said the development, deployment and transfer of low emissions technologies, including renewable energy technologies, was a key area of focus for future activities under both partnerships.
