Abstract

Energy functions as vital material basis for the development of economy and society. China has become a major energy producer and consumer of energy and the energy demand is still growing. In 2006, China’s total energy consumption reached 2.46 billion ton of standard coal. To increase energy supply, ensure energy security, promote economic and social sustainable development are most important strategic missions in China. In particular, renewable energy is an important type of energy resource in China. It has been playing an important role in meeting energy demand, improving energy structure, reducing environmental pollution and accelerating economic growth.
