The Chinese government has promised that renewable energy will account for at least 20% of the total energy consumption by the end of 2030, up from 12% in 2015. In addition, around 2030, China's carbon dioxide emissions are expected to peak.
According to the Greenpeace report, China hopes to increase the share of wind and solar energy from 4% in 2015 to 17% in 2030.
If the wind and solar targets are achieved by 2030, China will reduce fossil fuel consumption by nearly 3 tons of standard coal annually, equivalent to the total energy consumption of France in 2015.
From 2016 to 2020, make a plan of the national development and Reform Commission Chinese renewable energy five year plan, the wind power capacity from 2015 to 129 GW in 2020 increased to more than 220 gw. At the same time, solar energy will increase from 43.18 GW to 110 gw.
