Rising capacity

By the end of last year, the country's annual power generation from wind and solar energy accounted for 13.8 percent of total electricity consumption, data from the National Energy Administration show.

Meanwhile, China saw a steady rise in the newly installed capacity of clean energy in the first four months of the year, with wind and photovoltaic power reaching a combined 62.51 million kilowatts from January to April.

By the end of April, China's total installed capacity of wind power had reached 380 million kW, while the total installed capacity of photovoltaic power was 440 million kW. When combined, the two accounted for 30.9 percent of the country's installed power generation capacity.
