According to the China Electricity Council (CEC), over a quarter of its energy consumption was powered by green sources. China's total output increased by 14.56 percent in 2010 to more than 4.19 trillion kWh.
According to the Xinhua news agency, in 2010, total installed power capacity increased just over 10 percent to 962 GW.
According to the report, Hydropower accounted for 213.4 GW, a noticeable improvement, up from 196 GW from 2009.
Wind power capacity almost doubled, with total use in 2010 reaching 31.07 GW. The report also highlights nuclear power, which increased slightly from 9GW in 2009 up to 10.82 GW in 2010.
According to the report, the improvement and larger capacity in renewables meant that China was able to close pollution creating fossil-fuel plants, cutting output from the sector by 11GW.
China plans to raise total power capacity to about 1,440GW by 2015, and hopes that ambitious wind, solar and nuclear projects will raise the level of renewables to more than a third of total capacity.
By 2015, China is hoping to have about 1/3 of its power capacity coming from clean energy sources, even with the goal of increasing total capacity to 1440 GW.
