China's energy output, green development boom over decade

(MENAFN) Zhang Jianhua, Chairman of the National energy Commission of China, announced that from 2013 to 2023, China's total primary energy production increased by 35 percent. He detailed that the installed capacity of wind power generation has nearly quintupled, and the installed capacity of photovoltaic (solar) power generation has surged more than thirty-fold during this period. These advancements highlight China's commitment to enhancing its energy consumption structure and advancing green, low-carbon development to unprecedented levels.

Jianhua underscored China's significant strides in energy security and stable supply levels since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China in 2012. He emphasized the ongoing improvements in the energy consumption structure, which have been pivotal to these achievements. One notable milestone is the establishment of the world's largest infrastructure system for charging electric cars, a testament to China's dedication to fostering a sustainable energy ecosystem.

Jianhua also noted a marked shift in the country's energy consumption patterns over the past decade. The proportion of coal consumption decreased by 12.1 percentage points, while the share of non-fossil energy sources—such as wind, solar, hydropower, and nuclear energy—increased by 7.7 percentage points. This shift has substantially enhanced the "green content" of China's economic development, reflecting the nation's progress toward a more sustainable and environmentally friendly energy future.
