Source: International Energy Agency outlook 2013
In November, the International Energy Agency (I.E.A.) released their annual executive summary, in which they projected that, by 2035, renewable energy will account for nearly half of the increase in power generation around the world. China is expected to have the largest growth in energy generation from renewable sources, with an anticipated output greater than the E.U. and U.S. combined. In 2011, China was the country with the highest over-all wind-power capacity. Today, wind-energy production continues to thrive across the country’s vast landscape, though pollution continues to plague its cities. China is the largest greenhouse gas emitter in the world due to the coal electric power plants.
