China renewable electric power

China has just published an astoundingly ambitious and exciting renewable energy plan for the next ten years, to get a total of 500 Gigawatts of renewable energy on the grid by 2020.

From a mere 25 GW on the grid now, to a staggering 150 GW.

China is already the world leader in solar thermal hot water heaters for rooftops.

The solar hot water goal is to have 300 million square meters of solar hot water collectors, up from 100 million in 2006.

China is the world’s factory and carbon emissions from the world’s factory are about to get lower!
