One of the most polluting countries in the world, China, is the surprise leader in efforts to generate an energy much more clean and beneficial to nature and the environment, according to a study reported the second week of October, surpassing the United States, Japan and Australia which has left very from behind. The report carried out by Vivid Economics and commissioned by the Australian Climate Institute (Australia s Climate Institute thinktank) shows that China was the second country, only behind Great Britain, seeks investment of different incentives to reduce pollution through electricity generation, this way to somewhat mitigate the effects of climate change. For its part, the efforts of Great Britain in this topic are estimated at 29.30 US dollars per tonne of carbon. China invests 14.20 US dollars, United States registers 5.10, 3.10 Japan, Australia 1.70 and just 70 cents of US dollar is what invests the South Korea. Six countries account for almost half of all the global emissions and the main generators of the greenhouse effect. The Chinese Government has taken a strategic decision that was not taken in the last two industrial revolutions and they don’t want to lose the opportunity to implement it. Now as a result are commanding the largest market share in investments in power clean worldwide. A breakthrough for this oriental country.
China’s investment in clean energy exceeded 35 billion US dollars in 2009 compared with $ 11 million in Britain and 18 million dollars in the United States, and it is hoped that this list this figure to increase tenfold over the next decade. Main motor from China for doing this was its commitment with the closure of more than 100 small coal power plants to thus formalise central coal cleaner in 2011, which, according to the report, could reduce emissions by 15 percent. Grants are also offered by million Yuan for green and renewable energy projects, with the target of generating 15 per cent of the total energy of the nation from renewable sources for the year 2020.
