Energy use set to rise slightly

CHINA’S energy consumption is expected to reach 4.36 billion tons of coal equivalent in 2016, up 1.4 percent year on year.

Non-fossil fuel consumption accounts for 13.3 percent of the total amount, up 1.3 percentage points year on year, as China encourages users to switch from coal and oil to cleaner fuels, said Nur Bekri, director of the National Energy Administration.

China aims to raise the ratio of non-fossil fuel consumption to 14.3 percent in 2017, while cutting the ratio of coal to 60 percent, he added.

He also called for efforts to promote clean energy and emission cuts, optimize China’s energy structure and boost global energy cooperation.
