The Chinese government is to spend Yn2bn on developing solar energy in the west of the country, reported China Daily. The vicedirector of the high-technology department of the State Development Planning Commission, Qi Chengyuan, said that the fund would help residents in places where there is no power transmission network to buy solar energy equipment. Target areas include Tibet, Ningxia and Shaanxi.
Although the take-up of solar energy in China is low, purchases of the equipment have been growing annually at 30 per cent in the last five years.
