The article considers the energy security strategy introduced by the Chinese government in response to the possible underproduction of domestic energy sources. The three main parts of the strategy include the reformation of the domestic energy sector, expansion of the country's energy structure, and diversification of foreign energy sources. The country's dependence on coal as an energy source has had a negative impact on its environment and population.
