Abstract

China is the largest developing country and the second largest energy-consuming and CO 2-emitting country in the world. China has already regarded renewable energy development and utilisation as a critical element of their sustainable energy strategy. In this context, China's renewable energy development and utilisation will have important implications for the world energy market development and global environmental protection over the long term. This paper gives an overview of the context of China's renewable energy development and utilisation in terms of driving forces, current development and utilisation status, future targets, barriers and public policy.
