China is aiming to harness geothermal energy of 50 million tonnes of coal equivalent (TCE) annually by 2020.
A joint government guideline said it wants geothermal energy to supply power of 20 million tonnes of TCE annually by 2015 and a national information system on the energy shall be in service.
Under the same time frame, geothermal energy would look to provide heating for 500 million square metres of housing, and installed capacity fueled by geothermal energy should top 100,000 kilowatts, the guideline said.
The State Council in late January approved an energy consumption control target, part of the country's efforts to correct overuse and foster greener growth.
