BEIJING, Oct. 24 (Xinhua) -- China will make unswerving efforts to develop new and renewable energy to protect ecological environment and achieve sustainable development, according to a white paper released Wednesday.

Vigorously developing new and renewable energy is a key strategic measure for promoting the diversified and clean energy development and for fostering new strategic industries, said a white paper on China's energy policy released by the Information Office of the State Council.

The country will actively develop hydropower, solar power and wind power generation, seek safe and efficient way of developing nuclear power, as well as utilize biomass energy and other types of renewable energy, according to the white paper.

China plans to increase the share of non-fossil fuels in primary energy consumption to 11.4 percent and increase that of installed generating capacity from non-fossil fuels to 30 percent by the end of 2015, the white paper says.
