ABSTRACT
The article reports that renewable energy will contribute 10 percent of China's energy consumption by 2010. This target, which is equivalent to the energy produced from burning 300 million tonnes of coal, was announced by the country's National Development and Reform Commission. The focus of the scheme in developing commercialization of biofuels, wind power, solar energy, hydropower and natural gas is emphasized. Economic incentives such as funding and tax relief will be offered to companies and taxation, concessions and price regulations will be used to provide guarantees for the market.
