They even have pandas*

China has just released plans to create one hell-of-a renewable energy source! A solar thermal energy plant will be at full tilt by 2020.

The project, using solar-thermal technology provided by Solar Millennium AG, would have a capacity of 1,000 MW (megawatts) by 2020.

Total investment would be about 20 billion yuan (US$2.5 billion), according to the company.

An initial phase with a capacity of 50 MW would be built in "a short period" at a cost of around 1.3 billion yuan (US$162.5 million), said Wang Genshu, chairman of the Inner Mongolia Ruyi Industry Co Ltd.

Good on 'em. We'll all be speaking chinese by then! :P

*have you ever noticed how fake pandas look? ...Go google a picture of them, and they seriously look like people dressed up in costumes. it's so strange.
