China’s Clean Energy Output Advances 48% In One Year
November 24th, 2012 by Adam Johnston
China’s clean energy output in October increased by 48% compared to October of 2011, according to Bloomberg, to 92.1 billion kilowatt-hours.
In the first 10 months of 2012, the country has seen 810.20 billion kilowatt-hours of “clean energy” produced (which also includes nuclear and hydro), advancing by 26%, noted the State Electricity and Regulatory Commission (SERC).
The 810.20 billion kilowatt-hours of clean energy produced accounted for 20.4% of China’s on-grid power this year, which is up 3.6% from one year earlier.
What is a telling tale from China’s recent clean energy numbers comes from wind, given the emerging market country in 2008 had 12.2 GW of wind energy, and plans to install 100 GW by 2020, given previous 2009 estimates.
