China is in the transformation phase from a rural society to an industrial society, from a planned economy to a market economy. The major challenges which China's power industry is facing are: how to establish and improve an effective power market mechanism and the supporting governmental administrative system; how to improve energy efficiency; how to safeguard security of energy supply; how to improve the coal-oriented energy mix; and how to promote the healthy and orderly development of renewable energy. This chapter provides an introduction to the market reforms in China's power industry; analyses the influence of renewable energy sources on energy network enterprises such as grid companies; and discusses the basic duties, difficulties, and the possible solution of China's network companies with regard to the promotion of renewable energy sources.
