So what does China's current energy consumption picture look like now? Let's look at some data. In 2015, fossil fuel still dominated the market. 90.1 percent nuclear energy was 1.4 percent, hydro power, 6.6 percent, biomass energy, 0.4 percent, other renewable energy, 1.5 percent.

And in terms of fossil fuels, coal is the main fuel. China burns as much coal as the rest of the world combined. Now, China is ambitiously trying to change this picture.

It's projected that in 2030, fossil fuel will account for 79.1 percent, over 10 percentage points down, nuclear energy 4.8 percent, hydro power, 10.3 percent, biomass, 1.2 percent and other renewable energy, 4.6 percent.

The Chinese government has promised the world that by 2020, China's non fossil fuel energy will account for 15 percent of primary energy consumption. China has also pledged that its carbon emissions will peak by 2030.
