Shanghai to have 20,000 green cars in use by 2015, govt says

Shanghai aims to have 20,000 private-owned clean energy vehicles in use by 2015, as part of the efforts to control air pollution in the city, the municipal government said in a statement on its website Friday. In the city’s air pollution reduction plan for 2013 to 2017, coal consumption is expected to see negative growth as the city has vowed to cut annual concentrations of PM2.5 by 20 percent by 2017 from the level seen in 2012. Shanghai will also establish an air pollution warning and prevention network in cooperation with cities in the Yangtze River Delta.
