China can show how it is responding to climate change on numerous fronts, including improving its energy efficiency and adopting a low carbon energy strategy.
At the ongoing UN Climate Conference in Cancun, Mexico, He Jiankun, vice chairman of the Tsinghua University Council and director of the Low Carbon Energy Laboratory, said China is trying to improve its energy efficiency to save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The energy consumption per unit of GDP has been reduced by 53% from 1990 to 2009, much more than the average level of 15 to 30% by the developed countries.
English.News.cn reports Du Xiangwan, a member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, as saying, "Besides improving energy efficiency, China is striving to develop nuclear energy and renewable energy including white fuel, wind energy and solar energy."
