China Promotes Utilization of Low-carbon Energy
According to the 13th Session of the 11th Meeting of the NPC (National People’s Congress) Standing Committee, China will apply various incentive measures - including developing related technologies and improving preferential fiscal policies - to accelerate the promotion and utilization of low-carbon energy resources. The specific policies are as follows.Firstly, develop hydroelectric resources under the precondition of guaranteeing the protection of the surrounding environment, the conservation of local biological systems, and the resettlement of local residents.

Secondly, gradually promote the share of nuclear power in primary energy supply, and accelerate the construction of nuclear power plants in the coastal regions and the coal-poor provinces in central China. In addition, a system of innovation in nuclear power construction should be established to effectively stimulate the development of a modern nuclear power industrial system.Thirdly, develop wind power and set up a comprehensive wind power industrial system in the country.

Fourthly, boost the development of biomass energy, such as fertilization, fodder transformation, and energy transformation from straw. In the areas where biomass energy is abundant, power plants and medium- and small-sized boilers which use straw as fuel should be built. At the same time, the utilization of biogas in the countryside should be encouraged, especially in breeding areas and on large-scale farms. For economically developed areas facing land shortages, waste incinerator power plants should be constructed.

Fifthly, stimulate the use of solar energy. In remote areas, we should promote the use of household photovoltaic power generation systems or construct small-scale photovoltaic plants; in the cities, we should bolster the construction of integrated solar powered buildings, solar powered water supply systems, and display projects for solar powered heating and cooling systems. In the countryside and in small towns, we should promote the use of household solar powered water heaters, solar houses, and solar powered cooking appliances.Finally, efforts should be put into developing geothermal energy and technologies relating to hot water supply and ground source heat pumps which meet the requirements of water resource and environment protection.
