China’s installed capacity for generating wind and solar power increased dramatically in the first two months of the year as the country revs up efforts to achieve carbon neutrality, official data showed.

In the January-February period, the installed capacity of wind power jumped 17.5 percent year on year to reach 330 million kilowatts, said the National Energy Administration.

Solar power installed capacity reached 320 million kilowatts during the period, a surge of 22.7 percent from a year ago, the data showed.

By the end of last month, China’s total installed power generation capacity stood at 2.39 billion kilowatts, up 7.8 percent year on year.— Xinhua
