Electricity is different from the other services we find in the home. Unlike air or water that can be harvested from nature, electricity must be manufactured. Electricity generation is the process of generating electric energy from other forms of energy. The Chinese economy is booming. It has achieved an average annual growth rate of 10% since 1990 and, according to the World Bank, is one of the largest economies in the world. Indisputably, China is an industrial power to be reckoned with. Electricity production accounts for 32% of total global fossil fuel use and around 41% of total energy-related CO2 emissions. China's total annual electricity output was 3.71465 trillion kWh, and the annual consumption was 3.6430 trillion kWh (second largest in the world). Chinese fossil production electricity has proven to be a large source of air pollution nationwide. Ac- cording to the Chinese National Statistical Bureau, instead of using coal, Wind offers an important alternative to coal as a source of energy for generation of electricity in China with potential for significant savings in CO2 emissions.
The Use of Fossil Fuels:
Electricity production is responsible for 32% of total global fossil fuel use. It offers also economic benefits and significant opportunities for reducing dependence on fossil fuel, which helps to reduce the amount of pollution that caused by fossil fuel. A set of indicators has been industrialized to analyses the energy efficiency of electricity production from fossil fuels on a global level. These indicators show the efficiency of electricity production from coal, natural gas and oil separately and from all fossil fuels together. The global average efficiencies of electricity production are 34% for coal, 40% for natural gas and 37% for oil. For all fossil fuels, the global average efficiency is 36%. The examination is based on IEA statistics and includes public electricity plants and public CHP plants. Electricity generation...
