China May Exceed 2015 Energy Demand Forecast, 21st Century Says

The government didn’t set a cap on total energy consumption for the five-year plan through 2015 because of the difficulty in adjusting the nation’s economic structure, where the secondary industry accounts for a high proportion, the Guangzhou-based newspaper said, citing Zhang.
