China has seen rapid development of renewable energy in 2021, laying a solid foundation for the country’s pursuit of its carbon peaking and carbon neutrality goals, according to a report.

Last year, the country’s renewable energy utilization amounted to the equivalent of saving 750 million tonnes of standard coal, helping reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 1.95 billion tonnes, the report released by the China Renewable Energy Engineering Institute showed.

China’s installed capacity of renewable energy reached one billion kilowatts in 2021, accounting for 44.8 percent of the country’s total installed power capacity, the report said.

In terms of power generation, the country’s renewable energy generated 2.48 trillion kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity in 2021, accounting for 29.7 percent of the total power generation, it said.

By the end of May this year, the country’s installed capacity of renewable energy hit a new record high by exceeding 1.1 billion kilowatts, the report said.

The rapid development of renewable energy has made a positive contribution to building a clean, low-carbon, safe and efficient energy system, it added.

China has announced that it will strive for peaking carbon dioxide emissions by 2030 and achieving carbon neutrality by 2060.

The country is forging ahead in renewable energy development to improve its energy structure.

According to a five-year plan issued earlier this month, by 2025, the country’s annual power generation from renewable energy sources will reach 3.3 trillion kWh, and renewable energy consumption will amount to the equivalent of saving 1 billion tonnes of standard coal.

China will accelerate the construction of storage facilities and upgrade its power grids to feature intelligent functions in an effort to accommodate the development of clean energy, according to the plan. (PNA)
