From 2005 to 2015, China effective energy saving, emission reduction and energy efficiency have improved significantly. China's total energy saving reaches 1.57 billion tons of standard coal, equivalent to reduce carbon dioxide emissions of 3.6 billion tons.
Over the past 10 years, China’s coal consumption accounting for the proportion of total energy consumption is dropped from 72% to 64%, whereas the proportion of non-fossil energy accounted for the proportion of primary energy consumption is gradually increased from 7.4% to 12%.
Non-fossil energy consumption has been rapidly developing. Compared with in 2005, China's hydropower installed capacity increased 1.7 times, wind power installed capacity increased 100.8 times, solar power installed capacity increased 615 times, biomass power installed capacity increased 33.8 times, nuclear power installed capacity increased 2.9 times by 2015. By 2014, the Chinese renewable energy accounted for 25.4% of the world's total installed capacity.
China's special representative for climate change Xie Zhenhua expressed, China pays attention to improve the quality and efficiency of economic growth. The development of the trajectory is to gradually achieve low carbon, reduce the discharge of major pollutants, and gradually improve the environment. As a direct result, carbon emissions will be gradually decoupling GDP growth. While reaching peak, the GDP growth in a manner of decarburization will prevail.
