While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on the climate crisis makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

The challenge now: To make every day Earth Day.

    Solar Vs, Coal In China

    Is It Possible For Solar Energy To Compete With Coal-Fired Electricity In China?

    Ken Silverstein, February 4, 2019 (Forbes)

    “…[Coal is now 60% of China’s] electricity base and renewables are 20% — and poised to be 35% in 2030…[China’s latest five-year plan] set a cap on on coal-fired generation at about 1,100 gigawatts…[though] it already has about 1,000 GW with another 250 GW under construction…[and it] is cutting the subsidies it gives to solar panel makers, which has negative implications for the domestic landscape but which has positive ramifications for foreign markets…[Exports] have skyrocketed…[This] could eventually become an opportunity…[for renewables] to become competitive with coal…[China’s goal by 2024] is to have wind and solar compete with coal without the benefit of government subsidies…

    …[The] solar sector will become more efficient and produce a better product…[The country should now use of dollars generated by exports] to expand its transmission grid to handle the additional wind and solar energy capacity that it expects to come on line…[S]olar module prices dropped by 35% last year because of increased global competition, all of which implies more and more solar installations around the world…[China surpassed its 2020 goal of 105 GW of rooftop solar capacity and has a goal of adding about 55 GW of utility-scale solar, which connects to the grid…China’s developing economy means that coal will continue to play a key role there…[But] the country’s rollout of solar energy has surpassed all expectations.” click here for more
