China is the number one consumer of coal in the world, the biggest greenhouse gas emitter and also the world's largest maker of wind turbines and solar panels. As the country's energy consumption increases, where should China focus its efforts when it comes to developing- and using- cleaner sources of energy?

China was seen as the leader in what some were calling the “nuclear renaissance” before a March earthquake and tsunami in Japan resulted in one of the worst nuclear accidents in history.
As Japan continues its battle with the Fukushima nuclear reactor, much of the world is reevaluating the momentum the nuclear industry has seen recently.
According to the International Atomic Energy Agency, China has 27 nuclear reactors under construction. Following Fukushima, China announced it would put a hold on the building of new reactors, but officials haven't indicated it will pull back on development plans for the next five years.
Should China-- an emerging economy with growing energy needs—persist in its pursuance of nuclear energy? What are the alternatives?
