According to a new study the growth of China’s clean energy sector will be tremendous by 2025. This report was from the State Grid Energy Research Institute, China’s Energy Research Institute, and other organizations which are concerned with the growing prominence of the RE sector in the country.

At present, China is an aggressive power which is supported with clean energy and is holding its position as the globe’s leading investor in renewable energy and clean technology, particularly when it comes to wind and solar power. In the foreseeable future, it is expected that the clean power sector in the country will play a crucial role in the country’s overall energy framework.

The study mentions that China could be able to get around 57% of its share of electrical power from the renewable energy sector by the end of 2030. And by 2050 it will become 86 per cent. This report also mentions that the national economy of the country will grow around seven times during this period which will further cement China as an economic superpower. China’s growth in the clean energy sector is related to the nation’s aggressive investments which are propagating projects that create renewable power.

Nevertheless, the study also projects that the China’s use of clean energy will have to first align in order to become reality. These include the country receiving its electricity from renewable and which calls for significant growth in the number of electric vehicles present on the roads. Most of these vehicles in the nation have to spend less money on buying or producing traditional fuels and invest more in effective energy infrastructure which can support clean vehicles.
