Policy: State Council Releases Opinions on New Urbanization Construction
The State Council released a new set of opinions on plans for further urbanization and construction. Noteworthy in the cleantech arena, buildings that are deemed large and buildings built with government funds are required to pass green building certifications. Moreover, new green building materials and construction techniques should also be promoted. (People CN)
 
We are seeing a rising trend in policy supporting promotion and construction of green building materials. Azure is increasingly active and successful in development and execution of market entry strategies for green building technologies.
 
 
 
Policy: National Energy Board Sets 9% Non-hydro Renewable Energy Consumption Goal for 2020
The National Energy Board set a goal of 9% renewable energy consumption by 2020, excluding hydropower resources. All non-fossil fuels, including hydropower, in primary energy consumption will be 15%. These goals are in line with the 2014-2020 National Energy Development Strategy Action Plan and other major important laws and plans.  (NEA CN)
 
While planning for 9% consumption on the surface is commendable, all provinces are not created equally and we’ll see some provinces, such as Xinjiang, account for a much larger share of renewable energy generation. A major bottleneck will be transmission and utilization of renewable energy generation resources, and there are no government figures on curtailment forecasts in 2020 and beyond.
