About 17 percent of China's electricity came from renewable sources in 2007, led by the world's largest number of hydroelectric generators. 1 Total installations of hydropower reached 145,000 MW in 2007. China has set a target of 190,000 MW for 2010. 2 Technology development and increased amounts of investment in renewable energy technologies and installations has increased markedly throughout the 2000s in China, and investment in renewables is now part of China's economic stimulus strategy . 3 Researchers from Harvard University and Tsinghua University have found that the People's Republic could meet all of ...

Renewable energy technology in China: Protect and profit ...
China will soon be, if not already, one of the greatest commercial opportunities for enterprises in the renewable energy and energy efficiency business. Demand for electricity is rising at 15% a year [R1]. China is projected to need 9 times the energy generation capacity of the United States within the next decade [R1]. China is committed to 15% of electrical power being from renewable sources by 2020 [R2] and the Chinese Premier has pledged that China will reduce its carbon intensity by 40-45% by 2020 from 2005 levels [R3].  In another post I discuss the amazing growth in renewable energy technology patent filings. It is ... market research, surveys and trends

China pioneers in renewable energy - People's Daily Online
The facts cited as follows will evidently confirm the report released last month by the Climate Group that China is the world's leading producer of energy from renewable sources and is on the way to overtaking developed countries in creating clean technologies. In 2007, China led the world in terms of installed renewable capacity at 152 gigawatts. In 2007, investment in renewable energy in China amounted to $10.8 billion, up 91 percent over the year before, excluding the investment in its giant hydro power projects. In 2007, China's investment in renewable energy projects totaled $ 12 billion, almost level with world ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
China Speeds Up Renewable Energy Development | Worldwatch Institute
was invested in renewable energy development worldwide. China topped the list with a commitment of US$6 billion, excluding spending on large hydropower projects. China has good reason to speed up its renewables development, as the country is fairly poor in many energy resources in per capita terms. Its remaining exploitable reserves of petroleum and natural gas are merely 7.7 percent and 7.1 percent of world averages, while those of coal are 58.6 percent of the world average. At the current rate of extraction, China’s proven reserves of these resources could last 15, 30, and 80 years, respectively, compared with world averages ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Making the Global Shift to Renewable Energy
As fossil fuel prices rise, as oil insecurity deepens, and as concerns about climate change cast a shadow over the future of coal, a new energy economy is emerging. The old energy economy, fueled by oil , coal , and natural gas , is being replaced by one powered by wind , solar , and geothermal energy . Despite the global economic crisis, this energy transition is moving at a pace and on a scale that we could not have imagined even two years ago. And it is a worldwide phenomenon. Consider Texas. Long the leading U.S. oil-producing state, it is now also the leading generator of electricity from wind, having overtaken California ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Chinese drivers stuck in epic traffic jam for nine days
Friday gridlock is painful enough, but try sitting in traffic for over a week. Unfortunate motorists heading northwest from Beijing to the Heibei province are currently trapped in a traffic jam to end all traffic jams, now entering its ninth day.  The congestion started with a spike in heavy cargo-bearing trucks on National Expressway 110 on Aug. 14, but a perfect storm of gridlock seemed to form as the days continued. Thanks to auto accidents, broken-down cars and highway construction, the traffic extends for more than 62 miles. How long is 62 miles? Picture a jam stretching from downtown Los Angeles to San Clemente , or ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
