Abstract : China is well set to push forward renewable energy for the industrial sector in an effort to meet clean technology needs and cut emissions across all sectors, said Paul Simons, deputy executive director of the International Energy Agency (IEA)

Beijing, Nov. 9 (Xinhua) – China is well set to push forward renewable energy for the industrial sector in an effort to meet clean technology needs and cut emissions across all sectors, said Paul Simons, deputy executive director of the International Energy Agency (IEA), in a video message for the release of an IEA insight Paper Renewable Energy for Industry in Beijing on Thursday.

The global release of the paper was jointly held by China Economic Information Service (CEIS) under Xinhua News Agency and IEA, indicating China’s great role in promoting the use of clean energy in industries.
