Energy Savers – Lan Xinzhen

From Beijing Review (link):

Pressure is mounting for China to reduce its consumption, but many say the government’s target of cutting energy use per unit of gross domestic product (GDP) by 4 percent this year will be a major hurdle.

Nearly half of the provinces and autonomous regions in the country are facing this pressure, and officials are trying to find ways to achieve this goal.

“It will be difficult for our province to fulfill this requirement,” said Yu Youjun, Governor of Shanxi Province, which boasts the largest coal reserves in China. “Nevertheless, we’ll manage to fulfill the target. It’s a trend to follow the path of scientific development, which should be energy-saving.”
