Relevant Legislative Systems for the Management of Agricultural Renewable Energy at State Levels Are Still Incomplete

The incompleteness of the state legislative system is demonstrated by:

1. a lack of legislation concerning the management of agricultural renewable energy. Not only is there no specific legislation on this issue, there is even a lack of relevant provisions in related legislation. In terms of state legislation, only certain laws, such as the Law of Agriculture and Law of Energy Saving, are concerned with the integrated utilization and management of agricultural renewable energy. There are

58 Ministry of Agriculture of People's Republic of China, "Statistical Information of China's Agriculture (2001)," Rural Energy, China Agriculture Press, (Beijing, 2002).

59 Wang Gehua, "Contributions of Constructions of Rural Renewable Energy Made to Deduction of CO 2 Discharge and Actions" (2002) 1 Energy ofJiangxi 1-3.

also only two departmental statements formulated by the State Administration of Environmental Protection and the Ministry of Agriculture that touch on the issue of agricultural renewable energy substances from the perspective of rural environment protection. It is obvious, therefore, that provisions concerning the management of agricultural renewable energy, in related legislation, do not provide full legislative authority for actions in this area; and 2. the unbalanced approach of current State legislation is reflected in legislation concerning energy management more generally. Although the annual resource output of agricultural renewable energy in China totals more than one-third of the annual output of fossil fuel energy, certain laws normalize the exploitation and trade of fossil fuel energies, such as coal, petroleum, and natural gas. Such laws also provide for taxation and the management and maintenance of resources and equipment to different extents. In terms of legislation concerning energy management, there is still no authority to enact any specific legislation concerning agricultural renewable energy from the perspective of resource management.
