China is considering capping its carbon emissions beginning in 2016, a senior adviser to the Asian nation's government said today, according to Reuters. The adviser, who later said the statement was a personal view, added that Beijing's goal of achieving a peak in greenhouse gas in 2030 would require the company to meet its nuclear power target, according to the news service. Beijing is looking to have the country's share of non-fossil fuels reach 20%-25% in 2030, Reuters quoted the adviser as saying. Cameco (CCJ) is a uranium miner, while Chinese solar energy companies include Canadian Solar (CSIQ), JA Solar (JASO), SunPower (SPWR), Trina Solar (TSL) and Yingli Green Energy (YGE).
