China blew past its previous record for renewable energy installations last year with a massive -- and surprising -- addition of wind power. The National Energy Administration said in a press release on Wednesday that China added almost 72 GW of wind power in 2020, more than double the previous record. The country also added about 48 GW of solar, the most since 2017, and about 13 GW of Hydro.
