The National People's Congress will examine a draft law to encourage the use of renewable energy. The draft law lists wind, water, and geothermal energy as renewable options.
An NPC environment spokesman says China faces a worsening environmental situation, and must urgently develop renewable sources of energy.
The draft law lists wind, solar power, water, and geothermal energy as renewable options and contains regulations for their exploitation and development.
The draft will be discussed at the 13th Session of the tenth NPC Standing Committee which starts Saturday.
Currently, 50 countries have enacted laws to promote development of renewable energies.
