These are the solar mountains. This is how China wants to become completely ecological The Middle Kingdom has very ambitious plans related to its climate neutrality. While the projects underway may be stunned by their scale, this goal will only be achieved in a few decades.

There is no other country in the world that would invest such unimaginable money in technologies of obtaining energy from renewable sources. Despite this fact, China still has a long way to go to complete climate neutrality. Unfortunately, this is due to the richest countries in the world, which have their factories there or export goods from them.

China is the producer of practically everything that is in our homes today. Manufacturing on a global scale emits huge amounts of pollutants, including carbon dioxide, which is one of the most invasive greenhouse gases. The government does not hide that only in 2030 the country will reach its peak level of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. In the 1940s, it is expected to slowly decline, and the country is to become climate neutral only in the early 1960s.

Looking at a video published by Chinese TV, we can realize how far and winding the road is to becoming fully green for such a powerful power. The solar mountains near Tangshan in Hebei Province are actually a meaningless drop in the sea of ‚Äč‚Äčinvestments that will be close to movies in this country for the next decades. Either way, I'm glad that something is happening in this matter.

China this year also expanded its solar farm, called Huanghe Hydropower Golmud Solar Park, on such a scale that it became the second most powerful in the world. It has a capacity of 2,200 MW and is built of 7 million individual solar panels.
