China pledged to stop building new coal-fired power plants overseas, as part of its push for green development of Belt and Road Initiative, according to an official proposal plan document.
The document was co-issued by China's top economic planner National Development and Reform Commission, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Commerce and Ministry of Ecology and Environment on March 28.
China has totally stopped construction of new coal power plants overseas, according to the document, and it also urges coal power projects that are still under construction should proceed cautiously.
Relevant enterprises are encouraged to adopt stronger emission control technologies, such as desulfuration and denitration units, dust removal and carbon dioxide capture, use and storage, in order to strengthen clean and high-efficient utilization of coal for the ongoing projects.
The renewables, nuclear, hydrogen, energy storage and intelligent girds will be major aspects of cooperation under the Belt and Road Initiative, and Chinese solar and wind power producers are encouraged to expand their market shares overseas.
The policy also supports researches into development of green and low-carbon cooperation in steel and other industrial industries, as well as green transport, trade and finance cooperations.
