Reuters reported that China set mandatory renewable power quotas for each of its region for 2019 and 2020, the National Energy Administration said in an attempt to promote the use of clean energy in the country. It said that local grid companies will have to purchase a certain volume of electricity from renewable energy generators.

The targets, setting as a portion of renewable energy use in total energy mix, vary from 10% in eastern province of Shandong to as high as 88% in southwestern province of Sichuan in 2019 based on their energy structure.

The draft plan was launched in November.

NEA statement said that apart from checks from local authorities, central government will also deploy inspectors to monitor the implementation of the policy.
