China surges further ahead in solar power production

China also maintained its no. 1 status for having the world’s most powerful supercomputer

Like states in the U.S., some Chinese provinces produce more solar power than others because they are in sunnier regions. The ones that produce more have lower feed-in tariff rates.

China's move to increase its solar power generation comes at the same time the country is pressing ahead in other high-tech areas, including supercomputing.

China maintained its first-place ranking among the world's top supercomputers makers, according to the 47th edition of the TOP500 list.

China's Sunway TaihuLight supercomputer is the new No. 1 system, with 93 petaflop/s (quadrillions of calculations per second).
