The Chinese government and power industry face important challenges. in the past three decades, china has been experiencing a rapid growth in its economy, and energy consumption has increased dramatically as well. Although per capita energy consumption is lower than that of most developed countries due to the large population of China, total energy consumption is high. In addition, energy resources, fossil fuels, and renewable energy resources are geographically far from load centers. Furthermore, because China wants to contribute to the global effort to combat climate change, it must implement a carbon reduction target while pursuing economic growth and ensuring energy security for 1.3 billion people.
