China In The Renewable Energy Race


  • Sarmiza Pencea

    (Institute of World Economy in Bucharest)


For over three decades Chinese economy grew annually by an average of almost 10%, driven by huge investments in industrialization, urbanization and infrastructure networks and by large exports of price-competitive goods. The downside of China’s accelerated development is its insatiable hunger for energy – China also became the world’s largest energy consumer - and for natural resources, which, on the one hand contributes to depleting faster the global stocks of non-renewables and, on the other hand, it dangerously increases pollution.
