  11. 11. Strategic Significance of Hydropower in China • To adapt to climate change • To safeguard energy safety • To reduce poverty • To support social, economic development
  12. 12. To Adapt to Climate Change China’s Energy Structure Hydro 7% Nuclear & others 2% Non-fossil 9% Fossil 91%Copenhagen Commitment: by 2020,•Non-fossil energy: up to 15% Coal 76% Oil 11%•Carbon emission: down 40-45% Natural gas 4%than 2005 Fossil Non-fossil
  13. 13. To Safeguard Energy Safety China’s Power Structure• Proportion of thermal Wind Nuclear 2% 1% power: too large (74%)• Increase hydropower: Hydro inevitable choice to adjust 23% power structure Thermal 74%
  14. 14. To Reduce Poverty• China’s hydropower resources concentrate in western less-developed regions• Hydropower: boost economy, reduce poverty
  15. 15. To Support Social, Economic DevelopmentIndustrialization Development Stage of Hollis B. Chenery Per-capita GDP ($) Economic Development Stage 300-600 Primary Products Stage 600-1200 Initial Stage 1200-2400 Middle Stage Industrialization Stage 2400-4500 Advanced Stage 4500-7200 Early Stage Developed Economic Stage 7200-10800 Higher Stage• China GDP per capita: $ 4,371• Population under poverty line: 150m (< $1.2/d/p)China needs hydropower to support social and economic development
  16. 16. Strategy of Hydropower Development• To actively develop hydropower on the premise of ecological protection• Goals: – Total hydropower: 380 GW by 2020 – Including conventional hydropower: > 330 GW
