Title: Clean Technology

Clean technology
  • China, through its rapid industrialization in the
    last four decades has found itself in an
    environmental dilemma due to ignoring clean
    technology. With atrocious air pollution causing
    smog clouds and respiratory diseases, China
    started on a campaign to produce clean renewable
    energy to power its manufacturing industry.

  • Rani Jarkas observes that Chinas vision to be a
    renewable energy monster will open up
    investment opportunities in the clean energy
    sector. As of now, partly spurred by the 1.1
    million deaths per year from air pollution, China
    has rolled out the worlds biggest investment in
    renewable energy.

Cost effective clean energy
  • The biggest problem that haunted clean energy
    adoption was the high costs involved. Chinas
    large scale investment in clean energy has seen
    the tables turn and brought down the cost of
    renewable energy worldwide. Solar generated
    electricity is now as affordable as electricity
    from fossil fuels like coal and natural gas.

  • China is installing wind turbines and solar
    panels at an amazingly high rate such that every
    hour, a wind turbine is erected and enough solar
    panels to cover a football field are installed.
    In 2016 alone, 35 gigawatts of electricity
    generated from solar panels were added to the
    grid. This amount almost matches Germanys entire

Investment opportunities in alternative energy
  • Coal is responsible for 40 of the dangerous
    pollutants in the air in China. As such, China
    has singled out coal as a dangerous energy source
    and replacing coal is a priority.

  • In their efforts, China has set a target to
    obtain 20 of their energy from renewable sources
    by the year 2030. A total of 360 billion has
    been allocated for this effort in the next three
    years. A strong backstop is therefore presented
    for investors who have their money in clean
    technology in China.

  • Rani Jarkas poses the example of Jinko Solar
    located in the Yangtze River Delta. Jinko Solar
    have stepped up to meet demand and last year
    alone, they produced enough solar panels to
    generate the electricity capacity to power 10
    coal-powered plants.

  • Apart from this, they also export solar panels to
    North America, the Middle East, Asia, Europe and
    South America. This is an example of the ripe
    opportunity for investors to profit from the
    rapidly growing clean energy sector in China.

Curbing carbon dioxide emissions
  • In a 2014 landmark deal that saw President Xi
    Jinping of China and former President Barrack
    Obama admit that Chinas CO2 emissions would peak
    around 2030, China set on a campaign to adopt
    renewable energy.

  • Mainly due to the domestic air pollution, it has
    become Chinas personal agenda. Rani Jarkas
    reassures investors to invest in renewable energy
    since China is determined to stick to the
    commitment even when other states overlook the
    Paris climate agreement.

  • In the wake of these reforms, coal consumption
    has fell for three consecutive years since 2014.
    Coal is the main fuel source for industries and
    electricity production and cutting back on it
    leaves a huge gap to be filled by companies
    producing clean energy. With this level of
    government support, the future for clean
    technology in China is bright.
