Last year, a total of 267 billion USD was invested in renewable energy – and Chinese investors were responsible for a whopping 103 billion USD of this total. Excluding large-scale hydropower, investment into renewable energy made by developing countries reached 156 billion USD over the course of 2015. This surpassed the level of investment into renewable energy made by developed countries, which amounted to 130 billion USD over the same time period.
While renewable energy investments from Europe declined heavily in 2015, investments made by Chinese entities increased, making China the largest investor in renewable energy in the world. The most popular subsectors for investment are solar and wind, with biomass trailing in distant third place. Although renewable energy currently only accounts for 10 percent of electricity generation, this number is set to rise as it becomes more affordable and commonly utilised.
China is facing massive difficulties in terms of reducing and mitigating pollution – especially air pollution, caused mainly by the burning of coal for electricity generation. By investing in renewable energy, China is supporting the creation of new technology that could eventually allow the country to move away completely from coal and greatly reduce its air pollution.
