China's cumulated installed capacity of renewable power generation has exceeded the 1,000-GW mark to reach 1,002 GW as of the end of October, doubling from the end of 2015, the National Energy Administration said on its website on November 20.
The capacity accounted for 43.5% of the total installed power capacity nationwide, an increase of 10.2 percentage points from the end of 2015.
Specifically, the installed capacity of hydro, wind, solar and biomass power generation reached 385 GW, 299 GW, 282 GW, 3.53 GW, respectively, all of which rank first all over the world.
China, already the world's largest market for renewables, added 136 GW of renewables in 2020, accounting for 52.3% of global new renewable capacity added last year, according to the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA).
By 2030, China will boost the share of non-fossil fuels in primary energy consumption to around 25%, and raise its wind and solar capacity to 1,200 GW, part of the country's pledge to bring its carbon emissions to a peak before 2030 and reach carbon neutrality by 2060.
