The hydropower sector in China is enjoying a "golden age" with the nation's plans for capacity expansion this year and to cut carbon emissions, industry officials said on Wednesday.

China has set a target of having non-fossil fuels make up 15 percent of its total energy use by 2020. To achieve this goal, the country will need to rely on hydropower, Zhang Jun, deputy general manager of the northwest branch of China Power Investment Corp, said on Wednesday during the 2015 World Hydropower Congress in Beijing.

CPIC is a State-owned power generation enterprise.
