  • China sees 21% clean energy in power use (2013-01-16)
  • Clean energy took up more than a fifth of Chinas power consumption as the country boosted the use of hydro and wind power, according to official data. China consumed 1.07 trillion kilowatt-hours of power generated from clean sources such as hydro, nuclear, wind and solar last year, up 28.5 percent from 2011, the State Electricity Regulatory Commission said. The clean sources accounted for 21.4 percent of the nations total power use last year, up from 17.5 percent in 2011, the SERC said. Hydro power remained the biggest clean source of energy, rising 29.3 percent to 864.1 billion kWh. As of the end of 2012, China had installed hydropower capacity totaled 249 million kilowatts, a rise of 6.8 percent from a year earlier. Meanwhile, solar power soared 414.4 percent to 3.5 billion kWh to be the fastest growing sector. Wind power capacity rose 31.6 percent to 60.83 million KW, while solar capacity surged 47.8 percent to 3.28 million KW as the government boosted subsidies to the solar sector.    Photo by Imaginechina
