(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) The Chinese government announced late Thursday the establishment of a renewable energy center as a part of the country's efforts to achieve sustainable growth plans.

The center will also help authorities create a "developmental roadmap" for photovoltaic power, wind power, biofuel and other renewable resources, as well as collect and analyze data to be used by energy policymakers.
Deputy head of the National Energy Administration Liu Qi, said the center will come up with solutions in key fields such as quota distribution and renewable energy-fueled electricity generation.
