外文标题：China to install 17.8 GW of solar power in 2015, says National Energy Administration
BEIJING/HONG KONG: China has set a higher-than-expected target for solar power installations in 2015 as it seeks to boost renewable energy use, sparking a sharp rise in the shares of domestic solar companies.
China aims to install 17.8 gigawatts (GW) of solar power capacity this year, China's National Energy Administration (NEA) said in a document posted on its website.
This is up nearly 20 percent from the original goal of 15 GW of installations and nearly 70 percent from the 10.52 GW of solar generation capacity China installed last year.
Beijing set the target for 2015 in order to "stabilise and expand the solar application market," the regulator said.
Shares of Chinese solar companies rose early on Wednesday on domestic media reports that China planned to revise up its overall installation target for 2015.
Last month, the NEA had said China aimed to install 15 GW of solar generating capacity this year, but that it would consult the industry before setting a final target.

Worthy of noting is - China Implemented 70% of their Planned and where as India was able to achieve only about 23 % during same time.

India is talking where as China is acting. This remains the case while comparing China with India. India being democracy can not just wash away all the objections like objections on land bill in India therefore development suffers. Most of political parties have nothing to do with the welfare of people. They just want that their nears and dears get the pie leaving others. Shameful state of politics in India

China is always doing everything gigentic. They dont believe to do anything small. Anyways thats a good sigh that China is also moving towards green energy so other energy sources will last more.
