The article addresses the progress made by China in the field of alternative energy. Reportedly, the country is second to the U.S. in terms of energy consumption and is earning the reputation of being the largest emitter of greenhouse gases. However, China is considered as the largest consumer of wind energy turbines across the world. According to the author, the country's strategy in creating alternative energy sources would offer business opportunities for chemical companies.
