A Review of Renewable Energy Legislation and Policies in China

Part of the Energy, Climate and the Environment book series (ECE)

Abstract

As a newly emerging industrial nation with a large population, China has experienced rapid growth both in terms of economic output and energy consumption, especially during the last decade (Figure 10.1). Although China’s government, in its 12th Five-Year Plan, announced the goal of keeping annual economic growth rates below 7 percent (China’s State Council, 2011), energy demand is projected to increase over the next two decades, driven by a highly energy-intensive economy and by strong GDP growth (Cherni and Kentish, 2007).
