The Chinese Foreign Ministry urges increased global cooperation to effectively tackle climate challenges.

China Making Remarkable Progress in Clean Energy, says Foreign Ministry

China has made significant advancements in clean energy in recent years, playing a crucial role in combating climate change on a global scale. The Chinese Foreign Ministry emphasized the need for greater international cooperation to address climate challenges during a press conference on Friday.

Wang Wenbin, spokesperson for the ministry, revealed that China has exceeded its wind and solar development goals six years ahead of schedule. He further projected that China is expected to generate 60% of the world’s renewable electricity by 2028.

Wang emphasized that transitioning to renewable energy is the only viable path towards achieving the goals outlined in the Paris Agreement and creating a sustainable, green future. China has effectively transformed from a follower to a leader in clean energy, making significant contributions to global low-carbon development.

As of the end of 2023, over 50% of China’s power capacity was derived from renewable sources. Furthermore, the production and sales of new energy vehicles in China reached 9.587 million and 9.495 million respectively in 2023, marking a year-on-year increase of 35.8% and 37.9%. These figures accounted for over 60% of the global volume, maintaining China’s position as the world leader for nine consecutive years, according to Wang.

The International Energy Agency’s Renewables 2023 report acknowledged China’s extraordinary progress in renewable energy. In 2023 alone, China installed as much solar photovoltaic capacity as the rest of the world did in 2022, accompanied by a 66% year-on-year growth in wind power.

China’s remarkable achievements in clean energy serve as a testament to its commitment to a greener and more sustainable future. By surpassing its renewable energy targets and leading the global transition towards renewable power, China sets an example for countries worldwide to follow.
