We hope you enjoy this week’s map entitled China’s Power

For those of us living in China, the energy needs of China are self evident.  Whether it is a yellow sky, a rolling blackout, or simply the turning off of lights at 11pm in the summer, the costs of China’s progress are ones that we are all living with.

To meet this demand long term, China has embarked on an ambitious plan to increase the capacity of the energy infrastructure by developing large hydro projects (3 gorges dam), the development of wind farms, and the development of new technologies (pebble bed nuclear facilities).

Unfortunately, for the time being (as can be seen in this week’s map), the short term solution is to bring online more and more coal facilities.
