Non-fossil fuel output rises in 2017

CHINA’S non-fossil fuel production has gained steam amid a government campaign for more clean energy use to curb pollution, official data showed yesterday.

China’s energy production is set to reach 3.6 billion tons of standard coal equivalent in 2017, among which non-fossil fuel output accounts for 17.6 percent, up 6.4 percentage points from the percentage in 2012, according to information from a national work conference on energy.

By the end of 2017, China’s installed power generation capacity is slated at 1.77 billion kilowatts, and non-fossil fuel generation capacity accounts for 38.1 percent of the total.

China’s newly added renewable energy installed capacity accounts for 40 percent of the global growth, according to Nur Bekri, head of the National Energy Administration.

“China is actively adapting to the green trend in the energy supply,” he said, adding the country has become a global leader in the development of non-fossil fuel.

China has been promoting green resources such as wind and solar in recent years to cope with pollution and boost the quality of its growth.

China’s non-fossil fuel will account for half of its total power generation by 2030.
