China will be carbon neutral by 2060 (UPDATED)

Updated: Oct 1, 2020

China’s emissions will peak sometime between 2025 and 2030 and total energy demand will start to decline around 2035. The plan sees a gradual transition over the next 15 years, and then a rapid acceleration after 2035.

It increases green and nuclear energy and phases out coal by 2050. China would need to boost its share of non-fossil fuel energy to 20% by 2025, five years earlier than originally planned.

The share of non-fossil fuels in total energy demand will grow from around 15% in 2019 to 20% by 2025, 24% in 2030, 62% in 2050, and 84% in 2060,

President Xi just made a surprise announcement at UN that China could achieve a peak of Carbon emission by 2030 and carbon neutral before 2060. An aggressive move by China, the largest CO2 emitter with 28% of global emission. It will put pressure on US who still lack of a climate policy from the White House.
