We all know that China is one of the biggest exporters of goods in the world. The country is filled with factories that rely heavily on fossil fuels to be able to produce their products. In fact, China is the biggest emitter of greenhouse gases.
But despite this, China, for all its imperfections, knows that it’s about time they started moving towards a cleaner source of energy – one that won’t run out and won’t pollute the planet any further.
China is currently the biggest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world.
China is known for being in the lead when it comes to their climate change advocacy. Aside from investing in using nuclear and wind energy, they’re now making a huge leap in terms of solar power usage.
Sungrow Power Supply announced they have finally finished building a 40-megawatt solar power plant in what was once a coal mining town. The giant powerplant can be found offshore in Huainan. At full capacity, the giant solar power plant can provide electricity to up to 15,000 homes.
China is now home to the world's biggest solar power plant.
Its offshore location means it doesn’t take up a lot of land area, and its strategic location in the water means that it’s able to keep itself cool naturally.
According to studies, solar farms are the 8th best way to cut greenhouse gases. Solar power may only be responsible for 0.4% of the world’s electricity production, but it’s slowly growing as a primary source of power.
The floating power plant is China's next big move towards clean energy.
In fact, if reliance on solar power grows to 10% by 2050, 43.7 billion tons of carbon dioxide would be prevented from escaping into the atmosphere. On top of that, there will be new jobs and less damage from climate change, alongside bigger savings on operational costs.
