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.
In the October edition of the China Report, author Lou Schwartz writes about China’s top solar photovoltaic companies, biomass waste-to-energy projects currently in development, foreign companies entering the Chinese geothermal market and the growth of the country’s small hydroelectric industry.
