Climate experts insist China to take sustainable measures to reduce coal usage

Climate experts insist China to take sustainable measures to reduce coal usage

When the world leaders gathered in Spain to discuss about slowing down the warming of the planet, it was highlighted that China is on top of emitting greenhouse gases. Annual carbon emissions of China tripled between 2000 and 2018, and the country accounts for almost 30 percent of the world’s total. But on the other side, China is a leading market for electric vehicles, solar panels, and wind turbines. Furthermore, the country manufactures about two-thirds of the solar panels installed around the world. China is one of the largest coal markets, and it is also one of the largest in the clean energy market, so the country is witnessing many contradictions in its energy development.

China’s economy slowed down considerably, and government statistics indicate that the policymakers are doubling down on support from other heavy industries and coal because those are the backbones of China’s economy and energy system. Subsidies for renewable energy are reducing, and China had previously mentioned that it would commit to shift its energy mix to renewables; this includes hydroelectric energy and nuclear energy. Climate experts stated that initial pledges are not sufficient to reach energy goals, and next year they want countries to have a more ambitious target.
