China's latest energy plan is designed to ramp up low-carbon sources between now and the middle of this decade, but it stops short of promising too much too quickly — likely to ensure stable supply and avoid energy crises. The “primary task of energy supply security” is to be accompanied by “green production and consumption” as well as “greater modernization in the production chain,” the National Energy Administration (NEA) said in a Mar. 22 media session. The coming five years, said the NEA, will be a “critical” period for building a “sound foundation” leading up to the fulfillment of the country’s Paris pledges of peaking emissions by 2030 and reaching carbon neutrality before 2060.
