The Renewable Energy Law of China was enacted and had been amended relatively quickly. Further modifications to the law would enhance its effectiveness in promoting the development of renewable energy. Deficiencies exist in the current Renewable Energy Law, and its amendments should be improved. First, the legislative approach should be less politically driven but more pragmatic. Second, further amendments of the law should enhance its enforceability. Third, the law should be able to solve current problems and foresee future trends. Fourth, stakeholders' involvement and public participation should be encouraged.
