The China’s overall energy efficiency
is approximately 40%, which is about the same as United States. The
actual energy efficiency varies from the regions of the country.
China realized the
enormous economic and environmental benefits
from improving their energy efficiency to 70 %.
Programs have improve building's designs, electronic controls, and
heating and cooling systems. Residential, commercial, and industrial
energy efficiencies range from 30 to 80%.
Conservation Programs for electric power and transportation could
improve the energy efficiency to 70% by converting from carbon to
Their coal power plants are about 30% efficient and are major source
of carbon dioxide emission.
has modernized parts of their public transportation, which are
World-Class examples for other countries could emulate..
There are economic and environmental
opportunities for China to upgrading their coal power plants to clean
energy, increase their energy efficiency to 70% and significantly reduce
carbon dioxide emissions from the projected 15 billion metric tons to 4
billion metric tons.
