The article reports on the investment of China in sustainable energy as it is consuming more energy. It claims that the investment in 2009 in clean-energy companies hit 33.7 billion dollars. However, the installation of wind turbines continues to outstrip China's ability to hook them up to the power grid, and the sites chosen are not always where the best winds blow. In addition, there are problems with solar power planning to install by the Chinese government.
