Energy in China

ENERGY IN CHINA 3rd: 14th reserves for oil -th and natural gas coal reserves in the world WIND POWER Foreign wind turbine producers have seen their market share in China drop dramatically from 70 percent to 30 percent over the past five years after more Chinese companies entered the sector. GLOBAL ENERGY USAGE 2011 ELECTRICAL GENERATION The country accounted for 20.3 percent of the global energy consumption in 2010, and this is likely to go up Nuclear Wind Hydro 14.03% 1.85 % 1.55% considerably. CHINA'S ANNUAL NEW INSTALLED WIND CAPACITY (CHINA WIND ENERGY DEVELOPMENT ROADMAP 2050) Coal CHINA LEADS THE WORLD IN: making wind turbines, solar PV cells, installed capacity of wind power, nuclear stations under construction, biggest hydropower market 82.54% 30 gW CHINA'S OIL REQUIREMENT IN 2011 POLLUTION CONTROL China plans to reduce emissions for nitrogen oxide (NO2) and ammonia nitrogen by 10 percent below 2010 levels, and cut sulfur dioxide (S02) and chemical oxygen demand (COD) by 8 percent between 2011 and 2015, al of which is expected to create a market worth $30 billion. 56% 20 gW came from imports, including 254 million tons of crude oil and 40.6 million 15 gW tons of processed oil. LARGEST COAL CONSUMER 2010 2020 2030 2040 2050 Total installed capacity of coal-fired power plants in China 933 gW Power generated by clean energy sources like solar, wind, biomass and nuclear will account for energy INVESTMENT 650 gW 800 equivalent to that produced by 480 million tons of standard coal between 2011 and 2015. 600 The China Council for International 370 gW Cooperation on Environment and Develop- ment said in November 2011 that by 2015 China may spend an estimated 5.77 trillion yuan ($909 billion) to improve energy efficiency and protect the environment. 400 2005 2010 2015 HYDROPOWER I capacity I goals At the same time, nudging out high-polluting and energy-intensive industries could cost the country more than 100 billion yuan in economic output by 2015. But in return the country can save 1.43 trillion yuan in energy expenses, boost total economic growth by 8.08 trillion yuan. 330gW 300gW 216gW RESERVES Based on reserves and consumption in 2010, reserves will be used up in: Oil 9.9 years 2010 2015 2020 952,000 jobs lost 10.58 million jobs will be created by green energy Coal 35 years If maintained well, hydropower stations can be operational for 60 to 90 years, whereas wind power installations average 20 to 25 years and thermal plants 35 to 40 years.
