China is surveying the renewable energy around the country to exploit the potential of its renewable energy.
"The survey on water energy had completed. The survey on wind resources is under way. And the next focus is bio-energy. Studies on solar and geothermal energy will be launched soon," said Ou Xinqian, Vice Minister of the National Development and Reform Commission, said at a symposium on the implementation of the renewable energy law on April 5.

A resources management system will be there on the renewable energy and relative information will be open to the public. Ou added that a quota system was under consideration which would add renewable energy to the power supply and liquid fuel production.
The commission will draft a guideline for the focuses, prices and industrialization to boost the development of renewable energy. Most of their support will go to wind power, solar photographic power, and bio-energy technology.

Ou stressed that the renewable energy sector would be mainlydepend on self-initiated innovations, complemented by technical introduction.
Data from the commission presents insufficient exploitation of renewable energy in China. The efficiency of water resources for power generation is less than 20 %. Wind farms are equipped with a capacity of 760,000 kW, compared with the prediction of 1 bn kW for the wind resources. Research on bio-energy is in a very preliminary stage. Solar energy, which should have worked well on two-thirds of the land of the country, has not aroused much attention.
