On July 11, the National Development and Reform Commission of China announced it is aiming to increase its capacity for biomass power generation from the current 5.5 million kilowatts to about 13 million kW by 2015. The majority of China's biomass generation taps agricultural and municipal solid waste sources, and the new biomass and other localized renewable energy pilot projects will be established in about 200 “rural green counties.” Communities in these counties would also be part of a 1,000-town “solar model village” pilot project which will install solar water heating systems and other small solar panel systems said an official.
