Since 1990, China’s economic growth and export performance has been exceptional. The rapid growth in energy consumption and carbon emissions makes China a decisive player in global climate negotiations. In attempting to create more sustainable growth, China has introduced various policies designed to increase its renewable energy generation capacity and to establish an industrial base for clean technology production. With respect to the latter, China is particularly successful as its clean technology industry experienced a remarkable development. After producing only 3 MW in 2000, China’s solar PV panel industry became the largest global producer, making 10,852 MW in 2010, which accounted for 45 percent of world production in 2010. China’s wind turbine production also experienced a similar rapid growth.
