Our Perspective

Guide them in your ways, but let them guide you in technology. The global world should take advantage of the recent advancements in renewable technology achieved by China. Put your suppliers on the challenge to deliver more for you, push them to do it safer, more organised, more innovatively. Let these suppliers guide your organisation on the best way to decarbonise and manufacture renewably as they have already done it themselves. However, stay alert for differences in culture and operations between your organisation and your supplier.


In recent decades, China has undergone a remarkable transformation, evolving from a manufacturing powerhouse into a global leader in renewable energy production and manufacturing. This shift has significant implications for the world's efforts to combat climate change, boost sustainable development, and address global energy needs.

The Green Revolution: China's Commitment to Renewables

China has made a substantial commitment to renewable energy sources, driven by environmental concerns, energy security, and economic growth. Key elements of its green revolution include:

Investment in Solar: China has emerged as the world's largest producer and consumer of solar panels, thanks to substantial government support and a vast manufacturing base. Now dominating the scene for both home use and commercial solar power.

Wind Power Dominance: China leads the world in both wind turbine manufacturing and wind energy capacity, tapping into its extensive wind resources. Leading the way in offshore wind power construction and generation.

Hydropower Advancements: The country's enormous hydropower potential has resulted in the construction of major dams and projects that boost renewable energy generation. Also boasted a first in completing large projects like the three gorges dam.

Battery Manufacturing Prowess: China's solid manufacturing expertise, honed over decades, now plays a major role in maturing the battery manufacturing industry and improving the costs and scale of manufacturing. With the recent addition of Tesla as a manufacturing powerhouse, now its technology and understanding of battery is leading the world.

Their Secret

Scale and Efficiency

China's manufacturing facilities operate on an unparalleled scale, driving down production costs and making renewable technologies more affordable. Some of the partners we have worked with recently, like those of CATL, have plants which are larger than most Australian Towns. With unthinkable amounts of facilities in them. From schools, to hospitals, shopping centres, accommodation & dormitory, parks etc. along with kilometres worth of factories.

Innovation and Research

Chinese companies invest heavily in research and development, contributing to the continuous improvement and innovation in renewable energy technologies. Along with their R&D they often push the boundaries of live testing and operations by running experiments in real-life operating mines or factories.

Global Exporter

China exports renewable energy products to countries worldwide, supplying solar panels, wind turbines, and other green technologies at competitive prices.

Domestic Market Growth

China's robust EV market has grown rapidly, making it both the world's largest producer and consumer of electric vehicles. This has driven the need for high-capacity, reliable batteries.

Advanced Automation

Automation and robotics in Chinese battery factories have increased efficiency, reduced labor costs, and improved overall product quality. Robots are used for all aspects of the world, from taking your order in a restaurant to delivering your fresh towel in a hotel room.


Chinese government support and policy initiatives have been instrumental in promoting battery manufacturing:

Subsidies and Support: The government provides financial support to manufacturers, fostering research and development, and promoting battery innovation.

Environmental Regulations: Stringent environmental regulations are driving the development of cleaner and more sustainable battery technologies.

Access to Rare Earth Materials: Investments in securing a steady supply of critical materials, such as lithium, cobalt, and rare earth elements, have strengthened China's position in the battery supply chain.


Economic Competitiveness: Chinese renewable energy technologies are becoming more economically competitive and are accessible to a broader global market at very costly prices.

Global Decarbonization: China's transition to renewable energy aids the global effort to reduce carbon emissions, bolstering the fight against climate change.

Geopolitical Dynamics: China's leadership in renewable energy technologies can impact geopolitics, as countries seek to secure clean energy supplies and partnerships.

Willingness to Invest Abroad: Chinese companies have invested in battery production facilities and joint ventures in other countries, further expanding their global influence. And they are often willing to put real “skin” in the game to drive further innovation and R&D with their chosen partners or customers.


China's ascent as a global leader in renewables and manufacturing signifies a paradigm shift in the world's approach to sustainable energy. By leveraging its manufacturing prowess, government support, and international diplomacy, China is playing a pivotal role in the transition towards a greener, more sustainable global economy. The implications are far-reaching, influencing energy security, climate action, and global economic dynamics. As China continues to invest in and export renewable energy technologies, it underscores the importance of international cooperation and innovation in shaping the future of our planet
