China's energy industry

Due to the rapid industrialization and the increase in the standard of living (quality of life), the energy demand rose sharply. In 1985 about thirteen times as much energy was used as in 1957. The per capita consumption of energy is comparatively low at about half the international average and about a tenth of the per capita consumption of the United States. Therefore, a further sharp increase in energy demand can be forecast ...

In September 2016, China ratified the climate protection treaty adopted at the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in 2015. This provides for global warming to be limited to 1,5 ° C if possible, but in any case below 2 ° C compared to pre-industrial values.

Coal is China's most important energy source. In 2015, the share of total Chinese energy consumption was 64,4%, although the relative share has been declining for years because coal consumption is growing less rapidly than other energy sources. In the electricity sector, the share of coal was still 2007% in 83; by 2015, with the growing share of renewable energies and nuclear energy, the share had fallen to 72% ...

The installed capacity of hydropower plants in China represented more than a quarter of the global hydropower plant capacity in 2016. The share of hydropower plants in the installed capacity of all power plants in the People's Republic was 2016% in 20,2. In total there are several hundred hydropower plants in China ... 

The Chinese National Energy Agency recently increased its expansion targets by 30% and in 2015 overtook Germany as the largest installer of photovoltaics, both in total (21,3 GW) and per capita of the population of newly installed capacity (16,3 W). By 2030, renewable energies should cover approx. 20% of the total primary energy demand ...
