China’s alternative energy effort

U.S. reaction

Roodolph St Pierre


China s alternative energy effort

China’s rise in the ‘green’ world

In 2009, China outpaced Denmark, Germany, Spain and the United States to become the largest producer of wind turbines and solar panel


China s alternative energy effort

China’s rise in the ‘green’ world

In 2009, China outpaced Denmark, Germany, Spain and the United States to become the largest producer of wind turbines and solar panel

Within the past 18 months, it is estimated that close to $35 billion of privately funded money was invested in Chinese renewable energy projects in comparison to $19 billion in the U.S.

“As recently as 2006, Japan and Germany were the global leaders in solar modules produced” nowadays China not only joined the race but China is beating them to the race

How does the U.S. fare?

In the Energy Policy Act of 2005, the government invested on multiple industries to help solve the energy crisis. [4]

U.S. venture capitalists are investing in cutting edge technology rather than piling up on current technologies [2]


China s alternative energy effort

Issues / Future

“all alternative-geothermal, solar, wind, etc – produce only 3% of the energy supplied by oil”

China has surpassed the U.S. in terms of alternative energy equipments produced but China has yet to produce more renewable energy [3]

The reality is “China isn’t expected to produce more renewable power than the United Sates until sometime between 2020 and 2025, according to EIA.”
