October 22nd, 2010 | Caijing China Mapped out Energy Program During 12th Five-Year Plan
The objective of energy program is to maintain coal as dominating energy, while enhance production of other energies including hydroelectric, wind power, biomass energy, nuclear power and solar energy.
The development objective for the energy program during the 12th five-year plan has been mapped out, which is: to maintain coal as dominating energy, while enhance production of other energies including hydroelectric, wind power, biomass energy, nuclear power and solar energy, a source with China’s top economic planner told Caijing reporters.
By the end of the 12th five-year plan, China will shape up six to eight big coal groups and distinguish “input areas” and “output areas,” the source from National Development and Reform Commission.
The same source also clarified roles of renewable resource with hydroelectric power “the main body,” wind power one of the most important “emerging power” and solar energy industry with the most potential. Meanwhile, the biomass energy industry will be encouraged to develop diversely.
Specifically, the installed capacity of hydropower station is expected to reach 280 million kw, or 2.67 tons of standard coal by 2015.
The capacity of wind power station is projected at 90 million kw, biomass energy 1300 kw, nuclear power 30 million kw and solar energy 5 million kw by 2015.
