Zhang Guobao, director general of the National Energy Bureau, said at the National Energy Conference held December 27 that China's main expected energy development goal for 2010 is to have the output of primary energy reach 2.85 billion tons of standard coal, an increase of 3.6 points from 2009.

Zhang explained that in 2010, China will greatly develop renewable energy and nuclear energy and will try to increase the proportion of the non-fossil energy consumption to the total energy consumption by around 0.5 percentage points. China will continue to "establish large energy enterprises and restrain small ones," planning to shut down 10 million kW of small thermal power generating units. Zhang said that China shut down about 1,000 small coal mines in 2009 and the number of coal mines in China is now 15,000.
