At the beginning of 2019, it was estimated that China is all set to become a global leader in renewable energy. China is today in a leading position when it comes to renewable energy output and has also established itself as a market leader in other related technologies, such as electric vehicles. Beijing, today, has firmly established itself in an influential position, which sees other countries struggling to counter or even match up.
Following decades of rapid economic growth, China's energy needs have dramatically expanded and China is now the biggest consumer of energy in the world. Apart from this, China still remains the largest producer and consumer of coal, the biggest emitter of carbon dioxide.
By the end of 2016, most of China's energy and coal use was coming from its industrial sector, with the country's dependence on coal for powering its industries significantly causing urban air pollution, to the extent that polluted cities such as Beijing declaring holidays due to the deteriorating air condition.
With renewables leading the way, there is a new era on the horizon for China's energy industry. The Chinese government has clearly stated that it is well on its way to making renewables the core of the country's energy system by the year 2050.
