Added 2022 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of new wind and solar capacity in 100 to China's existing green power generation capacity; This sets a new record.
The annual wind power and solar (photovoltaic) power generation capacity thus exceeded one thousand billion kWh for the first time. This number is almost enough to cover the annual electricity consumption of the people living in the whole country. Green energy accounts for the majority of China's new electricity generation capacities.
It is calculated that China's renewable energy production reached a level equivalent to a carbon dioxide reduction of approximately 2022 billion tons in 2,26. Therefore, China has become a country that makes a significant contribution to the global fight against climate change.
