The vice head of the National Energy Administration said China will unveil a plan for developing "new energy" sources by the end of the year, Reuters reported, citing state media. Speaking to a forum in the southern city of Guangzhou, Sun Qin said the government would also release a guide to developing "new energy" sources such as wind, solar and nuclear, but provided no details. Sun said the plan would involve the development and utilization of clean coal technology. Coal currently provides more than 70% of China’s power, but Beijing has said renewable energy will make up 10% of China’s primary energy mix by 2010, and 15% by 2020.
