Environmental pollution, climate change, and the high price of fossil fuels are all worldwide problems. Sustainable energy, renewable energy, and storage energy are the needed solutions. If the world aims to attain 100 percent renewable energy, China is a vital factor that cannot be ignored.
As one of the largest importers of energy, the second largest economy in the world, and the biggest population in the world- China currently consumes a high rate of fossil fuels. The problem is, that while the price of fossil fuels is increasing, access to it is even more challenging. China fully understands the situation and certainly started taking steps on the matter.
Recognizing this issue as a global challenge in the upcoming years, President Xi Jinping made a pledge at the United Nations in September 2020 for the world’s second-largest economy to reach carbon neutrality by 2060. Analysts report that China will have to deliver that promise a decade earlier if the world wants to switch to 100 percent renewable energy.
China is already acting to deliver its promise. Developing Green Energy is one of the major targets on China’s current 5-year plan. Accordingly, many budgets, investments, grants and focus of the local government are allocated to this purpose. Working on storage energy, installing infrastructure for renewable energy all around the country, installing solar panels on the roof of the buildings, and rising solar farms and renewable energy stations all around China.
China and the rest of the world are already creating and using renewable and sustainable energy, but to truly succeed in switching to 100 percent renewables, we must know how to store energy.
What is storage energy?
How it can replace fossil fuels?
What are the Israeli solutions in storage energy?
How can China and Israel cooperate to achieve the world's goal?
These questions will be discussed in the next part of this article – stay tuned!
