China has vast potential for clean energy, from the sunny regions of Xinjiang and Gansu to its long, wind-swept shores.

Greenpeace is pushing for China to fully develop its clean energy potential, through drafting reports with renewable energy specialists, public engagement and more. We are also working in Hong Kong to convince the SAR government to adopt strong energy efficiency measures, and not nuclear power, to meet its energy needs by 2020.

We publish an ongoing series of reports and studies on China's renewable energy potential, as well as the damaging effects of coal on China.
