China's government plans to boost its goal for solar power installations by 2015 from 21 GW to 35 GW.

The decision, which is expected to help the country's struggling PV manufacturers, was made in response to the high levels of hazardous pollution currently affecting Beijing and other Chinese cities.

Shi Dinghuan, the counselor of China's State Council and the president of the Chinese Renewable Energy Society, told Bloomberg that China now faces increased pressure to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
