Strategic trends for future energy policy: Evidence from China

Strategic trends for future energy policy: Evidence from China In addition to taking advantage of clean technologies for energy from fossil fuels, China’s current policy is to focus on renewable energy especially hydropower and wind. However, this policy is not practical due to climatic problems for installing wind turbines and solar collectors in some Chinese provinces. In this study, China’s regional policy is examined in terms of renewable energy sources and solutions are provided. Based on the data available in the literature, it was found that the hydropower systems account for a significant share of energy required in China, except for Henan. Inner Mongolia was also introduced as the most important Chinese province for developing wind energy systems because over 30% of wind power capacity of China belongs to this province. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png "Energy Sources, Part B" Taylor & Francis
