Review

Current policies on renewable energy must also be strengthened to demonstrate China's global leadership in this area and build the energy framework for sustainable development. --Mohan Munasinghe, Nobel Prize Winner

I hope that the publication of this book can raise awareness and provoke thought on the issue of renewable energy, and attract more people to participate in the study of theories and the application of renewable energy, and thus contribute to the development of renewable energy in China. --Cheng Siwei, Former Vice Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress of China
