Thread: No war on coal over there!

    No war on coal over there!

    China is building a lot of coal-fired plants....

    According to this study, there was a surge in new coal projects approved at provincial level in China between 2014 and 2016. This happened because of a decentralisation programme that shifted authority over coal plant construction approvals to local authorities.

    The report says that at present China has 993 gigawatts of coal power capacity, but the approved new plants would increase this by 25%.
