China Solar Instalations May Reach 31 Gigawatts, Official Says

Jan. 15 (Bloomberg) -- China’s solar photovoltiac installations may reach 31 gigawatts of capacity by 2015, said Liu Qi, the nation’s vice minister and deputy administrator of the National Energy Administration.

The official, speaking at a conference in Abu Dhabi, also said China is willing to advocate global policies that push for a doubling of renewable energy capacity by 2030.

The comments shed light on China’s goals for expanding solar installations. Earlier this month, the institution said it was targeting 12 gigawatts of hydroelectric capacity, 18 gigawatts of wind and 10 gigawatts of solar this year in an effort to boost power production without increasing fossil-fuel consumption.
