The article focuses on China's carbon emissions and the country's growing need for fuel to provide its 1.3 billion people with electricity. It notes that IT Power's group manager Rebecca Gunning has said that China has huge resources for coal and is up for energy security because it has very little gas and oil. It adds that China has used significant amounts of renewable energy like hydroelectric technology, and has heightened to diversify its combined future energy resources.
