Is China trying to replace their coal plants with renewable energy sources?



  1. 0 Votes

    Although coal remains the biggest energy source in China, and is almost certain to stay that way, the rise of renewable energy, especially wind power, is helping to slow China’s steep growth in emissions of global warming gases. Six immense wind power projects are now being built around China, each with the capacity of more than 16 large coal-fired power plants. This year China is on track to pass the United States as the world’s largest market for wind turbines — after doubling wind power capacity in each of the last four years. State-owned power companies are competing to see which can build solar plants fastest, though these projects are much smaller than the wind projects. And other green energy projects, like burning farm waste to generate electricity, are sprouting up.
