Description:

The 12th five-year plan on National Economic and Social Development of the Peoples Republic of China is a programme targeting economic growth, innovation, competitiveness and social developments such as education access. Economic growth in the main three sectors namely the farming, industry and services is a main objective. Specific emphasis is dedicated to Green development, environmental protection and energy conservation.

The Plan includes binding energy targets, with non-fossil fuel resources reaching 11.4% of primary energy consumption by 2015, energy consumption per unit of GDP decreasing by 16% and CO2 emissions per unit of GDP decreasing by 17% by 2015. The plan also incorporates specific deployment targets for renewable energies as China will start the construction of 120 GW of hydro and build 70 GW of wind capacity - six onshore and two coastal and offshore large wind power bases- by 2015. China also targets the building of 5 GW of solar energy power stations, mainly in Tibet, Inner Mongolia, Gansu, Ningxia, Qinghai, Xinjiang and Yunnan. The plan also aims at supporting the development of new energy industries - such as large wind power generating sets and parts, new assemblies of efficient solar power generation and heat utilization, biomass energy conversion and utilization technologies.
