China spending on renewable energy soars!

World’s biggest polluter spends £4bn a year on wind and solar power generation in single region as it aims to cut fossil fuel use

Although China is the world’s biggest CO2 emitter and notorious for building the equivalent of a 400MW coal-fired power station every three days, it is also erecting 36 wind turbines a day and building a robust new electricity grid to send this power thousands of miles across the country from the deserts of the west to the cities of the east.

Jiuquan alone now has the capacity to generate 6GW of wind energy - roughly equivalent to that of the whole UK. The plan is to more than triple that by 2015, when this area could become the biggest windfarm in the world.
