Public Finance for Renewable Energy in China: Building on international experience

The Chinese government has responded to the challenge of increasing energy consumption and environmental pollution with ambitious targets for renewable energy generation; 15 per cent of primary energy is to be generated from renewable sources by 2015.

This report discusses the trends in renewable energy investment, the role of public finance in the renewable energy industry, the impact of renewable energy subsidies and the international experience of raising revenues from carbon pricing mechanisms to promote renewable energy.

The international context is of direct relevance to policy making in China as it continues plans to develop fiscal instruments that will provide public support to renewable technologies, including wind energy, hydro-electric generation and solar photovoltaic (PV) installations.
