If you thought that China had hit their limit on ambitious renewable energy-related plans, think again. The Chinese government is set to announce that they will install 10 million parking spots for electric vehicle charging by 2020 in order to support a major increase in electric vehicle production in the country.
The government expects electric vehicle production in China to hit one million units by 2020, and the country's automakers are planning to concentrate on all-electric vehicles as opposed to hybrids or fuel-cell vehicles.
To help drive growth in the industry, many cities have introduced incentive plans for purchasing electric cars worth up to $18,170 per car.
