China to increase solar and wind capacity to 90 GW in 2021

China’s National Energy Administration (NEA) has mandated transmission firms to connect at least 90 GW of wind and solar capacity to the grid in 2021.

NEA has also planned to create targets for the transmission of renewable energy (RE) rather than the construction of new capacity so as to avoid waste and ensure that wind and solar plants can sell all their electricity on the market. China has also recently decided to increase RE consumption by 20 per cent by 2025 and 25 per cent by 2030.
