Solar energy in China

Technical Report:

Abstract

The report presents the progress, status and goals of the Chinese national solar energy programmes since 1970s. It applies specially to solar water heating, solar drying, passive solar, solar cookers, and solar photovoltaics. In China, an expertise team has been organized, a number of technology development centers for new and renewable sources of energy have been set up and some demonstration projects are under way. Since 1970s Chinese Government has paid much attention to research, development and utilization of new and renewable sources of energy (NRSE). A coherent strategy governing the R and D and utilization of NRSE has been pursued for planners and descisionmakers. It is stated as `planning in accordance with local resources available and economic conditions; multienergy complementary supply; integrated use and concern of commercial and economic viability`. Chinas population is so large that it accounts for one fifth of the worlds total. Despite its vigorous family planning efforts, the absolute population growth would still be considerable due to its enormous population base line. This can not but affect the future of the whole mankind. Shortage of energy in China can not be expected to be overcome in a short period of time. The only way out  More>>
