Non-fossil fuels accounted for 11.1 percent of China's primary energy use in 2014, up from 9.8 percent last year, as the world's second-largest economy cut emissions to fight climate change, a senior official said on December 25th.
Non-fossil fuel refers to solar, wind, hydropower and nuclear energy.
The share of non-fossil fuel will rise to 15 percent in the primary energy mix by 2020, according to a national plan released in 2009.
Wu Xinxiong, head of the National Energy Administration, told a national energy conference in Beijing that China will implement measures to further reform its fuel and power consumption structure and establish a secure, stable and clear energy supply channel.
