By the end of November 2023, solar power generation in China had reached 560 million kilowatts, a 50 percent increase in one year.

China is also the global leader in the new energy vehicle NEV industry, with 8.88 million NEV vehicles sold in 2023, up 38% from 2022.

From 2013 to 2022, China’s forest cover has increased from 21.63 percent to 24.02 percent.
