Xinhua: China passes Renewable Energy Law to boost clean energy industry
From Xinhua Online:
Chinese top legislature passed Monday the Renewable Energy Law to ease the energy strain, secure the country’s energy security and better protect ecological environment.
The bill on renewable energy was deliberated a second time during the 14th session of the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress (NPC) from Feb. 25 to 28.
Mao Rubai, director of the Environment and Resource Protection Committee of NPC, said China must vigorously develop renewable energy, because rapid economic development had caused energy shortages, heavy pollution and dependence on imported energy.
