China's renewable energy industry is still developing rapidly and China made important progress in photovoltaic (PV) power generation, and the installed capacity of China's wind power generators reached 22 million kW last year, said officials from the National Energy Administration at the China Forum on New Energy.

The public bidding of a franchised 10MW solar energy and PV project in Dunhuang, Gansu province gave push to the construction of PV power plants all over the country. So far, 4 10MW PV power plants have been built in Ningxia.

It is said that China's energy consumption will reach 4.5 billion tons of standard coal in 2020, of which 15 percent of the energy will be non-fossil fuels. Therefore, the installed capacity of China's hydroelectric generators, wind power generators, solar energy generators, biomass energy generators and nuclear power generators must reach 350 million kW, 150 million kW, 20 million kW, 30 million kW and 80 million kW respectively. China still faces great challenges in developing the new energy industry.
